Does anyone know how large the pipe is? My estimate would be 3ft diameter. --WillSalt (talk) 17:27, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

"The initial scheme opened in 1906 with two 42in-diameter pipes. Two more pipes of 60in diameter were added between 1919 and 1961" from [1]. Another point not mentioned there, is that the Severn crossing is the lowest point and has the highest pressure on the entire 73 miles. --Graham Phillips 110 (talk) 17:50, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

That's the Elan Valley Aqueduct which passes under the railway nearby but isn't actually listed as a bridge or culvert. Trimpley Pipe Bridge passes over the railway and carries a single pipe. I have a photo but it needs scaling down before I can upload it to the wiki! --WillSalt (talk) 18:09, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I had the current engineering works on my mind an didn't read the question properly. --Graham Phillips 110 (talk) 20:31, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
