Ovingham Bridge Closure

As you will all know, the bridge was closed for up to a year in June 2014.
One of its main features was the racket that vehicles made when crossing it. The bridge is 131 years old and it is a tribute to the engineers who built it. They could never have imagined how much traffic it carries today.
But time has taken it's toll. And this clip (link below) secures for posterity just how much the work was needed. Thanks to Dean for recording it.
