Work has begun creating the western ramp of Bennerley Viaduct which will enable access to the deck of the structure from the Erewash Canal towpath. In appalling weather conditions, contractors have removed scrub vegetation to enable engineers to construct the ramp. Actual work on the ramp construction will start early in the new year. The commencement of the work is another historic milestone on our journey to reopen the structure. We thank the contractors who carried out this work in abysmal weather and floods.
