anotherdaycalling This is a precarious place to take a video shot from, it's on top of the railway bridge at Grove on the A338 in Oxfordshire, 3 metres away from where Bam Nuttall will be building a new bridge WITH A FOOTPATH for Network Rail, who changed their name from RailTrack so that we would not link them to all the terrible accidents and deaths caused by cost cutting negligence, RIP to those at Ladbroke Grove, Potters Bar and many more; I digress, there is going to be a nice new bridge 1.5 metres higher than the old one to accommodate the electrification of the Paddington to Bristol line, Isambard Kingdom Brunel would be impressed ! @petesboyd @vagabond_puppet #BamNuttall #NetworkRail #RailTrack #Railway #BR #BritishRailways #bridge #Electrification #GWR #GreatWesternRailway #groveOxfordshire #oxfordshire #wantage #A338Grove #publicTransport #publicHighway #CoalYardGrove #precarious 3w

anotherdaycalling This is the new bridge at South Moreton near Didcot in Oxfordshire, it's new as it replaces the old bridge that was not high enough to cope with the electrification being installed on the Paddington to Bristol line which was initially built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his team around 1840. The bridge has a life expectancy of 120 years, well we will never know ! #BR #BritishRailways #bridge #RailBridge #Railway #publicHighway #Electrification #SouthMoreton #Didcot #oxfordshire 3w

anotherdaycalling This is the new raised bridge at South Moreton near Didcot in Oxfordshire, built for the electrification of the Paddington to Bristol due to start in 2018, with luck. The passenger train is heading East having left Didcot Station ! #SouthMoreton #Didcot #oxfordshire #GWR #GreatWesternRailway #Electrification #NewBridge #Railway #RailBridge #publicTransport #train #NetworkRail 3w

raineyjernigan New blog post- an intro to my four part series!
Look out soon for more in depth posts on the reasons Why Developing Countries Still Have Low Electrification Rates. I'll be breaking it down for you in four parts! #renewableenergy #electrification #developingcountries #electricity #africa #blogging

anotherdaycalling Thank is a view from the top of the bridge on the A338 at Grove in Oxfordshire looking East towards Didcot on 27-02-2015 prior to electrification from Paddington to Bristol which is due to come into operation in 2018, personally I feel that is a bit optimistic, but time will tell ! #optimistic #Electrification #A338Grove #wantage #BamNuttall #BR #BritishRailways #GWR #GreatWesternRailway #groveOxfordshire #Railway #RailTrack 4w

h_gelis #Siemens’ expertise was preferred in all #electrification works of İzmit Bay #Bridge, which is not only the longest bridge in #Turkey, but also the fourth longest in the world. We visited the worksite together with our colleagues working on the project. This Bridge is another successful example of the key projects that Siemens has been realizing in Turkey for the last 160 years. 4w
  •   h_gelis Die längste Brücke der Türkei und die viertlängste Brücke der Welt, für die Elektrifizierung der Izmit Kulf Brücke haben wir uns erneut auf die Siemens Technologie verlassen. Mit unsere Arbeitskollegen haben wir die Baustelle besucht. Dieses Projekt ist ein gutes Beispiel für die kritischen Projekte, die wir als Siemens seit 160 Jahren in der Türkei durchgeführt haben. 4w
  •   h_gelis Ülkemizin en uzun köprüsü olmanın yanı sıra dünyanın da dördüncü en uzun köprüsü olan İzmit Körfez Geçişi’nin tüm elektrifikasyon işlerinde yine Siemens teknolojisine güvenildi. Görev alan arkadaşlarımızla beraber şantiyeyi ziyaret ettik. Bu proje Siemens olarak 160 yıldan bu yana Türkiye’ de imza attığımız kilit projelere güzel bir örnek daha oluşturdu. 4w

anotherdaycalling This is the ongoing construction of the new road over rail bridge on the A338 Station Road at Grove in Oxfordshire, little evidence remains of the station thanks to Dr. Beeching in 1964 ! @petesboyd @vagabond_puppet #A338Grove #groveOxfordshire #wantage #WantageOxfordshire #BamNuttall #NetworkRail #BR #BritishRailways #Electrification #GWR #GreatWesternRailway #VolunteerInn 1mon

anotherdaycalling It used to be called Wantage Road & with proud enthusiasm in the mid to late 1800s (exact date not known) the Victorians changed it to Station Road, and yes you guessed, Dr Beeching closed the station, then known as Wantage Road railway station (so called coz it was 2.5 miles outside of Wantage in Berkshire, yes Berkshire) in 1964 & it has been a fabulous vote catcher ever since at local and national election time by the non-lying parties who make noises about opening the station again. However, what is interesting about this photo as it shows where the existing brick bridge pillar support is (the bridge is being removed due to the increased height required by the Paddington to Bristol electrification) and is indicative as to how close but further to the east the new higher bridge will be ! #StationRoadGrove #A338Grove #GreatWesternRailway #groveBridge #bamNuttall #Railwayline #railwayBridge #electrification #GWR #NetworkRail #JCBdigger #Digger #BritishRailwsys #railtrack #DrBeeching #progress #railwayHistory #StationClosed 2mon

anotherdaycalling Looking north towards Oxford, this is the early stages of the new higher bridge on the A338 at Grove in Oxfordshire being built as part of the requirement for the Paddington to Bristol electrification. The present bridge, which can be seen to the left in the video, not being high enough to take the new cantilever equipment that will be on top of the new generation of trains ! @petesboyd @vagabond_puppet #electrification #GreatWesternRailway #A338Grove #grove #wantage #Oxfordshire #StationRoadGrove #newBridge #bamNuttall #NetworkRail #coalYardGrove #NetworkRail #railtrack #GreatWesternRailway 2mon
