INVESTIGATION, REPAIR AND STRENGTHENING OF A VIADUCT'S STEEL PIERS

In the late seventies a temporary steel viaduct was built beside a damaged bridge, carrying a heavily trafficked road crossing a railway line, and which was to be rebuilt. A few years later damage was found in some piers which were repaired and reinforced. Further inspection revealed several cracks in the same piers which were repaired and reinforced. Inspections again revealed several cracks in the same piers and showed that the strengthening had not been carried out sufficiently well and a second repair was undertaken. This needed to be done to a defined time scale in order to be completed by the target date for the opening of the new bridge. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 882313.
