  • An Innovative System for the Replacement of Movement Joints (2.55 MiB)

    80,000 vehicles use the QEII Bridge at Dartford every day. It has been described as a crucial part of the country’s strategic road network and a BBC survey found it to be “the most stressful section of the M25”. The desire was to investigate options and to identify a way of replacing fatigued movmement joints whilst keeping any traffic disruption to an absolute minimum. The innovative solution was a bespoke temporary over-ramp system – a world first for joint replacement on this scale.

  • Use of Multiple Technologies in the Management and Resolution of Fatigue in a major Box Girder Bridge (540.08 KiB)

    Constraints drive innovation and our ageing and heavily used existing infrastructure can and should be a breeding ground for innovative ideas. With designers and contractors open to collaboration and novel approaches, and clients focussed on long-term benefits, innovation can lead to substantial savings. The Challenge: A highly loaded structure carrying one of the busiest roads in the UK with a serious fatigue shortfall resulting from 'breathing' of the bottom flange. Fatigue severity depends on the variation in global loading and local deformed geometry, with many critical areas with expired fatigue lives.
