Here’s your update on Regensburg’s Stone Bridge (Steinerne Brücke) situation. As always, click a picture below to embiggen it if you like.
Compared to earlier status reports, it looks like we have major progress to report on the section leading from the middle of the bridge down to the Oberer Wöhrd. Maybe they’ll be able to chuck that ugly metal staircase before long.
But what’s this? The supports down near the water level on the downstream side all have a couple of big holes dug into them and a pile of stones resting on them. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but I think the stones are numbered. Perhaps so they can be put back? And what if we get another flood scare between now and then?
