Deck Fill Reduction at the Bear Pit
On Saturday I showed you the bottom of a pillar by the Bear Pit.
A council notice strapped to the pillar reads:
DECK FILL REDUCTION
"This project involves the reduction of the overburden load on the deck of the Mersey Bridge structure.
Recent assessments have identified that the bridge is overloaded in the North West corner due to the existing build-up of materials forming the steps. This load is being removed and the fill material is being replaced by polystyrene lightweight fill material. This will reduce the loading on the deck of the bridge by over 600t.
Access into the Bear Pit will not be possible during the works. We apologise for any inconvenience."
