The Albert Bridge Restoration
Have your say about
the Albert Bridge
Restoration of Albert Bridge, December 2003
In June 2003, Windsor and Maidenhead Borough Council issued the following Press Release.
Here the carriageway has been reduced by large, heavy concrete barriers to protect the workforce on the upstream side of the bridge, and to prevent vehicles from falling off the bridge on the downstream side. All the bridge parapet has been removed on this side of the bridge.
Pink balustrading is being used to replace the originals. The pink effect is presumably designed to look like granite although the centres are concrete.

and pink finish to the balusters.
Following a call from RBWM I can report that the pink colouring of the new balustrades will tone down in a year or so. The materials were carefully selected following an examination of the original balusters. I trust this is the case!
