The most notable engineering work on the former line between Woodham Ferrers and Maldon was the Chelmer viaduct that connected Maldon East and West stations. The central span was demolished using explosives in the mid 1960s, but the masonry survived until a new bridge was built to carry the A414 town bypass (opened in 1990). This view, recorded in 1978, shows the viaduct brickwork as it appeared from the Maldon West side of the river.
