Some Recent Engineering Works Carried Out in the City of Coventry

BRIDGES. A REMARKABLE feature of post-war engineering in this country has been theimprovement of the road system and one of the most urgent needs in road improvement is the replacement, or widening and strengthening, of old-fashioned or inadequate bridges. The worst of these are frequently found across canals. As Canal companies are under no obligation to improve them, this work must be carried out by Municipal or Precepting Authorities. In Coventry, Red Lane Bridge over the Coventry Canal is now in course of replacement and the replacement of Tusses Bridge over the Oxford Canal will shortly be commenced. A.L. Percy
