Victoria Bridge gets a weeding!

Fantastic! Someone with a level of authority within B&NES must have read my piece about the weed-infested state of the newly restored Victoria Bridge at Bath Riverside.

Buddleia was starting to grow on the top of the bridge pylons.

Weeds lined the route to this unique span.

Passing through that way today – to check on progress regrading the new Destructor Bridge – l noticed Mr Dredge’s 180 year old unique creation – restored at a cost of nearly three and a half million pounds – had been stripped of its buddleia saplings – on top the pylons – and its ground-growing weeds had also been removed.

Weed and buddleia free!

That is good to see!
