This is a good review which has raised a question. As a child there was a bailey bridge crossing the river Avon near me which has since been replaced with a more modern bailey bridge. The earlier bridge had a channel down the centre with raised wooden plateforms down each side I believe to these raised areas where to help distribute the weight of heavy vehicles using the bridge. With that in mind is this an early or late Bailey bridge or is it just a case of these raised plateforms being an addition which is not supplied with the bridge?

Hi Darren,

I do not know the answer. I'll try to find out.
