As we approach the half-way point in the Bridges to Broadway Share Appeal it is great to be able to report that the figure standing at £384,000 just another £116,000 to go.
The Railway has received six tenders for the bridge repairs which it will be assessing in the next few weeks. It is hoped that the contract can be let in early May so as to take advantage of the summer weather (assuming that we get some!) to start work – particularly the necessary foundation repairs. If we can raise the money in good time then we can allow the contractor the maximum flexibility in his operations. This will ensure the maximum efficiency in view of the different types of work required on the various bridges and the need to negotiate road closures. So If you have been thinking of buying some shares to support this work but have not got round to it yet, now is the time to make your move and support this major step towards reaching Broadway. If you need a copy of the share brochure or have any questions, do contact Maxine Hawkins on 01242 621905 and she will be happy to assist.
