The upstream railings have now been revealed, but as many have pointed out are already showing dirt stains. It seems that a forensic paint analysis showed the bridge has always been painted a shade of white, and so English Heritage insisted this should continue.
The work is still on schedule and WCC have issued another update.
This leaves just the waterproofing of the concrete extensions, the replacement of the curb stones, the resurfacing of the pavements & carriageway.
Who knows, with luck & good weather the bridge might even be opened earlier than the target date of March 16th.
