Underground Coronation Street in the Bistro Cellar

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog October 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

ITV Coronation Street have put online the plans for the Bistro Cellar.  It's a new set that was specially built to cage David Platt this week and stop him from trying to kill himself and Clayton Hibbs.

Above is the model and below are the plans.

Now then, I'm not an engineer but I'd love to hear from someone who is or knows about these things.  The Bistro is built in a unit under an arch of the viaduct. Is it really possible that there would be a cellar under a viaduct?  Wouldn't having a void under a viaduct undermine the structural integrity of the viaduct - which is, after all, a bridge to carry trams? Maybe I need to get out more.

Just a curious thought!

In the meantime, here's David in the cellar!
