Brentford Dock Bridge Inspection

10 August 2020 | Sectors | Civil Featured

CTP’s Civil Engineering Team was commissioned in March, by our Client Brentford Dock Ltd, to undertake an inspection of their highway bridges.

Due to the Covid-19 lockdown, our inspection was delayed until July, when we were able to undertake the inspections of two road bridges and a series of brick arches, which connected the two structures.

The bridges span over the Thames Lock and a live dockyard, which is operated by MSO Marine.  The majority of our inspection was completed from land.  However, we had to inspect some elements of the structure from a boat which meant waiting until high tide.

We wish to express our sincere thanks to MSO Marine for both providing and operating the boat and also allowing us unrestricted access through their boatyard to enable us to complete much of the inspection prior to the high tide.
