It would appear from the recent photos of the reinforcing steelwork that it is resting directly on the ground where the concrete will be poured, and I wonder if the necessary shuttering or lining will only cover the sides of the trenches and not the bottom. In my part of the world a moisture barrier, usually in the form of specialised thick plastic sheeting, is used to completely cover any bare earth before the steelwork is placed and the concrete is poured.

This prevents ground water seeping into the concrete and eventually rusting the steelwork, which causes it to expand and break the concrete. Otherwise known as concrete cancer. Acceptable building practices are obviously being followed at Bridgnorth, but maybe worth mentioning.

A selection of photos are being displayed on svrlive. I thought the complaint was that they appeared first on Facebook.

No, I was commenting about this which appears in an earlier post:-

"Some photos on http://www.svrlive.com/bridgnorth-development, and a lot more on Facebook, particularly the Severn Valley Railway Official Site."

Those on svrlive I will see, I won't be looking elsewhere for any others.


I am now putting the pics that I take onto the station wordpress website which needs no login, if anyone is interested - this includes the building work and the ongoing WWCC stuff.

Can anyone say if there has been more concrete laid down on the site? The last update on SVRLive was 24th February, and it is difficult to see what is happening by looking at the small "daily" image.

Thanks

Rob

Still no update since 24th February.

Can anyone say if there has been much progress over the past week and a half, or is there a problem we are not being told about?

Many thanks. looks a bit of a mess, but I guess they know what they are doing!

It looks as though the outer retaining wall is cast, or largely so.

Not a lot seems to have changed over the past 3 wks. Though I expect a lot as happen it just doesn't look that way.

Update on the project in an NBI and copied over promptly to SVRLive: http://www.svrlive.com/bridgnorth-development

In short, it appears that the project is 3 months behind schedule, with bricklaying planned to start at the beginning of Feb, but now expected to start 6 weeks hence, i.e. beginning of May. I'm somewhat surprised to see the winter weather mentioned as one of the main reasons for this, given that it was generally mild.

Hmmm. I'm no builder, but if it is inadvisable to lay a concrete slab when temperatures might fall below 5 degrees, then why on earth would anyone plan on doing such work between November and march anyway?

No wonder it is 3 months behind! It's a bit like going for a skiing holiday in the Swiss Alps in August and being surprised that there is no snow.

As seen on Saturday, more shuttering and re-bar laid down, particularly at the extreme southern end of the site.

Looks as though a mega concrete pour is not too far away, at last.

A lot of concrete has been poured...

https://svrbridgnorth.wordpress.com/2017/04/20/a-lot-of-concrete-2/

Four test walls have been built and the chosen brick has been decided.

The Bridgnorth Journal today reports that
"A milestone has now been reached as foundations are nearing completion and construction above ground can now begin.
The SVR is now looking to bring together veteran railway workers to help lay the very first bricks of the new station refreshment room, a key element of the project, on 3 May.
A search has been launched to find those who worked on the former Severn Valley line, which was completed in 1862 and ran between Hartlebury and Shrewsbury for more than 100 years before it was closed in a national rail rationalisation programme.
'We would love to invite those who worked on the Severn Valley line before its closure in the mid-1960s to join us in our journey to build on its future for generations to come."
