The Forth Rail Bridge is an iconic cantilever bridge constructed in the 1880’s and spanning the Firth of Forth just North of Edinburgh. It continues to remain a significant and admirable engineering structure of the Victorian era.

3. Forth Road Bridge

During routine inspections of the Forth Road Bridge by the operator, a crack in the pivot of one of the truss end links was discovered in late December 2015. This resulted in the bridge, one of the main transport links in the area being closed over the festive period and lengthy diversions.

The changeout of the affected steelwork took 18 months to complete, largely slowed down by the traditional scaffolding having to be continually modified to react to the changing work scope and with the scaffolders impeded with a lack of suitable steelwork for their connections into the structure.

Roll into 2017 and Transport Scotland decided to change the remaining seven end links as a precaution. The Spencer Group were awarded the contract, and they contracted HAKI Access to design, engineer and install a bespoke access system for their project.
