PORTHKERRY VIADUCT. VISIT OF COLONEL YORKE, R.E. RE-BUILDING TO BE COMMENCED. On Thursday in last week, Colonel Yorke visi- ted Porthkerry for the purpose of inspecting the viaduct of the Vale of Glamorgan Railway that has been rendered useless through one of the pillars sinking and causing serious defects in the arch. ways. The distinguished official of the Board of Trade remained at Barry during Wednesday night, and was early on Thursday morning conveyed to the viaduct in the Barry Company's saloon car- riage, accompanied by Mr Archibald Hood, the chairman of the Vale of Glamorgan Railway Com- pany, and seveial officials of the company. A thorough inspection of the masonry as it stands was made, and also the embankment on the Barry side of the viaduct that recently subsided, and a report will be made thereon to the Board of Trade. In view of the lengthy delay th2t must ensue before the defective masonry is properly restored some steps may be taken whereby the heavy traffic anticipated during the summer months may be continued without the present delay occasioned by the sel vice of brakes from Rhoose, and a light railway running round the back of Canon Allen's house and across Poi thker-ry Farm is even spoken of, but we are assured that nothing has yet been definitely decided upon. Sir James Szlumper, together with other emi- neD tiengineers, have also paid a vi, it tothe scene,and as the result of a consultation between these gentlemen, it has now been elefinitely decided to proceed without delay to re-erect the defective portions of the Porthkerry Viaduct, and after pulling down the sunken pillar deeper foundations w ill be secured. The greater portion of the viaduct from this spot to the abutments will, of necessity, be re-built. The work has been entrusted to Messrs Price and Wills, who are at present carry- ing out the No. 2 Dock, passenger pier, and Rhymney branch railway contracts in such an excellent manner for the Barry Railway Company.
