A number of surveys to famous listed bridges over the Thames have recently been secured, the first of which has already been carried out.
This month saw our dive and inspection teams carrying out a special survey and scour inspection to the grade II listed Kingston Bridge over the river Thames in London.
An underwater scour survey was carried out to each abutment and pier as well as a condition survey to above water areas. Due to changes in commercial dive regulations recently, we had a total of 8 operatives on site.
Kingston bridge is 116 metres in length and carries an estimated 50,000 vehicles across each day. The original section of the bridge dates back to 1828 although there have been 2 additional sections added since.
This is just one of the huge number of bridges, tunnels and culverts surveyed each year by our Civil Engineering Consultancy Division making us a leading UK and worldwide provider of bridge inspections.
