There’s not much of a blog today, despite me being out and about. A combination of poor weather and the need to sort out some bids for work has kept me otherwise occupied. That said, I did stop off at Hebden Bridge on the way home to get some pictures of the work to extend the length of both platforms. I have  to say, it’s been speedy. In the space of a few weeks the work’s got as far as this.

The Leeds bound platform with much of the side of the new platform in place, including the stone facing which will disguise the concrete structure, allowing the new to blend with the old.

Another view of the same platform extension, this time showing the cable runs inside.

Tomorrow I’ll be heading North of the border, so expect another rolling blog…
