200 years later, teams of technicians surveyed this beautiful bridge by a combination of industrial roped access techniques including descending, ascending and aid climbing.

All parts of the bridge structure were inspected at touching distance as well as diagnostic testing carried out.

A beautiful structure in a beautiful location and for a change – beautiful weather, work doesn’t get too much better than this!!
