Stream A - Wednesday 9 March 2022

Moveable bridges, the one mechanism approach

Drawing upon ROD and H&H’s combined experience – in the latter’s case more than 225 moveable bridges in the last 20 years – the presenters will explain why undertaking design, assessment and refurbishment of moveable bridges is most effective when they are treated holistically as a single mechanism. Examples will be drawn from existing moving bridges as well new-build structures that include the Great Yarmouth Third River Crossing.
