Progress with the Reading railway station transfer deck continued apace with the successful completion of stage 1 of the bridge launch at 3:30am on Sunday 8th July 2012. The slide was undertaken during overnight possessions which advanced a 728 tonne section of the bridge a distance of approximately 28 metres across the station railway lines. Assembly of the next stage of the transfer deck will now resume off-line before stage 2 of the launch can take place later in the year.
