Work begins to re-create Railway Bridge near Flatts
Construction is under way to link long-separated portions of the Bermuda Railway Trail.
Wooden frames have been installed around two pillars at the popular western Smith’s raft-up spot known as Police Beach, near Gibbet Island.
The plan, given the go-ahead earlier this year, included a bridge over North Shore Road, as well as one over Flatts Inlet and a third over a private driveway.
The assessment said the bridges would “allow for further connecting of the historic Bermuda Railway Trail to be achieved, which will benefit members of the public and visitors alike”.
It said: “It will enhance the existing experience for users of the trail and encourage further use while also allowing visitors another glimpse into the historic railway and beautiful vistas which would have been afforded to users of the railway at the time.”
Bridges have previously been built at Store Hill and Bailey’s Bay. The project was championed by Friends of the Bermuda Railway Trail.
