Abstract:
As an aftermath of the Industrial Revolution, England has been left with one of the oldest road and rail systems in the world. Interwoven into a nationwide network, these systems have required constant maintenance and rebuilding of thousands of Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century bridges. The rebuilding of one of these spans, located south of London, is de-scribed.
