The Wheatley Viaduct will have its damaged brickwork repaired and a new waterproofing system installed on the old track bed.
The National Highways’ Historical Railways Estate (HRE) has stated that the 130-year-old structure has deteriorated and suffered damage from vandals.
The viaduct, which used to carry trains from Holmfield to St Paul’s Station at Queens Road, will also undergo a bat survey before work commences to identify if bats are using the viaduct.
The work, which includes cutting back vegetation, removing and replacing water-damaged bricks, and “stitching” together one of the piers with structural reinforcement anchors, is expected to be completed by May 2024.
