River Walkham Boardwalk and Magpie Viaduct
River Walkham Boardwalk and Magpie Viaduct (Structures)
The scheme involved four distinct elements, all of which acted as preliminary works to a timber foot/cycle bridge across the Walkham Valley.
This bridge reconnected the old Plymouth to Tavistock railway track at a location one mile north of the Magpie Viaduct, which SWH has recently refurbished. This scheme was completed for Devon County Council.
The elements consisted of a new access and track into the wooded valley off the A386, reshaping a 2200m3 railway embankment, the construction of footings for a board walk and masonry faced abutments for new footbridge over the River Walkham, which SWH constructed at a later date.
