GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton
Widney Manor Station: gwrwm425
Looking towards Birmingham a view of the construction of the
bridge over Widney Lane and work associated with the quadrupling of the line.
The new bridge was sited at the end of No 3 and No 4 platforms. The additional
platforms were built from timber and in the case of the new Platform No 3 it
was aligned with the existing platform No 2 to create an island configuration.
This was achieved by building the new timber platform into the earth that
formed the base of the existing platform. The completed platforms No 3 and No 2
are seen in images 'gwrwm420b' and 'gwrwm428' respectively.
