Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Semington Aquaduct

Semington Aquaduct was opened in 2004 to carry the Kennet and Avon Canal over the new Semington Bypass which carries the A350 on its way from Chippenham to Westbury.

Although the A350 is a Trunk road funded by the Department for Transport, Wiltshire County Council took an active role in its promotion, and indeed their transport Supremo performed the opening ceremony.

The Aquaduct is quite a feat of engineering, with known architects and construction companies involved in its design and implementation.

The A350 passes under the waterway. Note that the canal
widens out into a waterway dual carriageway over the aquaduct - perhaps there's some advanced planning for a heavy increase in boat traffic.

Road traffic is already heavy under the aquaduct, although I doubt than many of the drivers realise they're passing under the canal.
