News from the Route

Bellotts Somerset and Dorset Intersect Bridge

Bellotts Bridge DeckBellotts Bridge carries the Two Tunnels route over the Great Western Main Line. The bridge was closed in September 2015 for work to demolish and replace its centre arch with a structure that has sufficient headroom to allow electrification of the Great Western Main Line. The structure reopened on January 31st 2017.
