Bridge Survey and Inspection

Of all the work we undertake and the multitude of uses our pontoons are put through, the most common requirement our clients have is undertaking bridge inspection or a bridge repairs.

The pontoons offer a safe, stable platform from which to undertake works. Whether its a simple visual inspection of the underside of the bridge. Or access towers and space for multiple crew are needed we can provide a pontoon to the and shape and size requirement you have.

We’ve recently undertaken two such jobs in very different locations.

Hampshire Council required access to the underside of Redbridge Viaduct, a busy road bridge on the way into Southampton. We provided a 5×5 metre pontoon with Combisafe edge protection and a 6 hp Suzuki outboard motor allowing structural engineers access to the underside of the bridge. We even provided a RYA accredited skipper to manoeuvre the pontoon for them.

At Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire a 4x4m pontoon with aluminium access tower was provided allowing engineers close up access of the soffit of a listed bridge on the estate.
