Did you know…

Chapel Lane bridge (large version)

The Chapel Lane bridge may look rusty, but don’t panic as it’s weathering steel which is often used in bridge construction.

We’re using this material to build the bridge otherwise the steel would have to be painted and maintained, resulting in possible temporary lane closures.

So thanks to having a rusty bridge we don’t have to close the road!

    I think many of your readers will need a bit more explanation on this one, i.e. that ‘weathering steel’ is a technical (not generic) term for steel which forms its own protective coating – up to a point.
