The work that is being done on the Carron river and Glasslaw burn progresses at it’s own pace. Sometimes there is a big change then it slows down a bit. It’s certainly worth a walk around to see what has changed.
The problem can be that once it has changed you can find it difficult to remember what it looked like before. To help this I have been taking quite a few photographs both before and during the work. The ‘before’ pictures are in an album on my Facebook page. ttps://www.facebook.com/martin.sim.334/media_set?set=a.2631218040312556&type=3 I took them on the 17th of September 2015 after a request by John Briggs to the Camera Club. It’s only recently that I remembered about them and realised their significance. I’ll add any other old images I come across if they are relevant.
The ‘during’ pictures are also on my Facebook page in another album https://www.facebook.com/martin.sim.334/media_set?set=a.2646436485457378&type=3&uploaded=56 and will be added to as I take more.
The green metal barrier between the red and green bridges has gone. The red bridge is closed to pedestrians but hasn’t been removed – yet.
The trees in Carron Terrace have been lopped and the new wall on the other side is now at full height.
The heavy rain recently has no doubt caused some problems.
Saturday 5th October. The advance of the metal piling has been heard as well as seen this week. It’s working its way up Carron Terrace. The new wall on the opposite side is at full height for most of it’s length. A similar wall is growing by the day on the east side of the Glasslaw burn and the steel skeleton of the west side is well under way.
