No more bridge bashing.

Looking west. A rare case of a closed road and an open railway line, the Newquay branch.

Now we're at the bridge...

Could it just be possible in the future that the Imperial version of this sign could be pulled down should the legislation about signage change to the metric standard?

Queen Elizabeth Road in Kingston. In this direction it's no entry except to cyclists, who have a height limit of 10'9' imposed on them

Leeds - 07 - Professional sign production

I think I mentioned this wonder at the Awayday. It's incorrectly designed and fabricated, uses the wrong fonts, symbols and materials (not retroreflective), and is placed a foot lower than its lamp on the pole. Genius.

Level crossing/low bridge combo in New Malden 3

The same crossing, showing how the tracks converge on the crossing itself, after the further (down) track has negotiated the diveunder seen in the previous photo

Low bridge combo in New Malden 1 - Coppermine - 600.JPG
Level crossing/low bridge combo in New Malden 1

This is a low (10 feet) and narrow bridge under the main London to Southampton railway. Note how the nearer part of the bridge has a wider span than the original arch bridge - were there plans perhaps to widen the rest of the road at a later date? In the foreground is a level crossing, but unlike similar combos such as the one at Manningtree, it is not there for tall vehicles. The crossing carries the Kingston loop line, which leaves the main line via a dive-under out of shot to the left.

Norbiton Railway Bridge - Coppermine - 530.jpg
Norbiton Railway Bridge

This is the infamous bridge across the A238 at Norbiton. As can be seen by the angle of the train, the bridge crosses on the skew, so overheight vehicles tend to be knocked over rather than stuck. Note the height is signed only in feet and inches - the last two vehicles to get stuck were both foreign. The width limit on the side road is a very recent addition - leaving overheight vehicles with no escape route. And yes, I did catch the train!

Lower Downs Road railway bridge, Wimbledon (north side) - Coppermine - 603.JPG
Lower Downs Road railway bridge, Wimbledon (north side)

Another low bridge on the LSWR, this one between Wimbledon and Raynes Park. Note that on the advance warning sign the height is given only in imperial units, and we also have a 'tunnel' sign.

Lower Downs Road railway bridge, Wimbledon (south side) - Coppermine - 604.JPG
Lower Downs Road railway bridge, Wimbledon (south side)

'Lower Down' seems a very appropriate name for this bridge! 7' 9' headroom posted (although it's rather more than that in the middle). Note the 'Low Bridge' electronic sign on the left, triggered if a tall vehicle passes it.

Low Bridge Ahead - in 'old' and 'new' form

Metrification by stealth? These are the low bridge ahead warning signs on approach to the low bridge on Aberdeen's Riverside Drive.

The inclusion of the 'Bend To Left' and 'Ducks Ahead' signs in the background were completely incidental.
