As well as bridging the gap there are a number of other areas of the railway that need attention this year. This gap was temporarily bridged with a plank of wood. However it's not the only thing in this area that needs fixing - the embankment on the left is too low!
Shuttering in place for raising the height of the embankment
Another view of the shuttering - ready for adding the concrete
As soon as the concrete had been added the heavens opened and it hasn't stopped raining since.
