Bridging the inspection gap

February 28, 2020

Up and Under (an RSK company) has been attracting attention in Chester, UK, after completing two weeks of inspection work on the Queen’s Park suspension bridge. The iconic structure traverses the River Dee and was built in 1923.

Cheshire West and Chester Council commissioned Up and Under to inspect the historic structure, which is almost 100 years old. Work involved careful inspection to determine the bridge’s condition. The team used specialist-access techniques, such as rope access, to get to the hard-to-reach locations along the side and underneath the bridge. The bridge was last upgraded in 2012.

The unusual sight of specialists suspended from the structure was shared in a video by local news website CheshireLive. An accompanying article explains: “[the work] has involved workers hanging off the structure in safety harnesses to examine every nook and cranny. ‘So far so good’ is the message from the bridge inspectors.”

Also, the team used confined-space techniques to access chambers containing the anchor cables. All work was undertaken safely, with minimum disruption to the public, and the bridge was kept open throughout the team’s work.

You can watch the video of Up and Under at work and read the full article in CheshireLive.
