Hookhills viaduct maintenance

5th August 2021

We had Peninsula Access track side during the week carrying out high level vegetation management on our viaduct. Removing and treating the vegetation stops the root from destroying the mortar holding the stones together thus extending the life of the viaduct. The pictures are of them working on Hookhills Viaduct at a height of 85ft (25m).

  • Highly recommend. - From boarding in Paignton, to alighting the ferry in Dartmouth, this journey has to be the best you can take on the English Riviera. It all goes by too quick. Highly recommend.
  • A thoroughly enjoyable day out - I was very impressed with the organisation, it was always very clear where we were supposed to go and what time we were supposed to be somewhere - would happily do it again.
  • Excellent. Recommended. - Numbers on board restricted due to Covid, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The Round Robin three-in-one ticket is a must do if you are in the area.
