PROPOSE D RUL W A V | EXTENSION. INTERESTING TO BARRY. The doubling of the Great \\Riilwfty bridge over the Taff River at Cardiff is now J approaching completion. Messrs. Taiiling and Elliott, 28, Victoria-street, Westminster, are the contractors, and they estimate that the four addt- tional lines thus acquired will bd readv for traffie in about a mouth, the work consisting in erecting two abutments and six piers side bvside with those of the old-bridge, the total length of the masonry being over 350 feet. Piles were first driven in, and when the water was pumpad out the stone- work was laid down to the solid rock. The firm have been less than twelve months at their task. and this must be regarded as remark- ably expeditious, oonsidering that bridge had also to be built over the Penarth-road and another over Clare-road, besides widening the embankment between these points. The Penarth-road bridge is intended to carry the Barry line to the docks, where the station will be built. The etnbank- mi nt, <fcc., are in the hands of Mr. John McKay, of -Newport, but the plans for the station have not yet been finally settled. Neither have those of the proposed Riverside station in Penarth-road, which will accommodate the Taff and Barry Traffie. The extensioa of the Great Western Railway Station itself will take the form of an entirely new departure platform for London and an island plRtform for general purposes.
