Pont de Chinon. Work completed (nearly)

Back in September when we last wrote about the Pont de Chinon. The works to  renew the foundations of two supports were well underway. Today they are virtually completed and it looks a very sound job....


All that remains is to remove the piles and dismantle the temporary access road. Today they had started to remove the pilings on the back side of the works..

 

Just in time for the high river levels of the winter...
