Weight and Stuff Report – 24 August 2015

That’s a large and not really accountable rise today. I suspect the scale of playing silly buggers again.

Today’s photo is another of the Tees bridges. This is the Newport Bridge[1], which is getting a shiny new look after years of being a faded dull green colour. I’d like to think that it’ll be restored to operation – as you might guess from the structure, the road deck used to elevate to allow ships to pass. But I suspect that’s too much to hope for – it would probably be hideously expensive to do…
