ICE - Edinburgh North Bridge Refurbishment - Virtual site visit, online
24th June 2021 6:15 pm
Join us as we embark on a virtual site visit for to the Edinburgh North Bridge refurbishment project. The online site visit will take attendees through a presentation of the project history and progress to date with an opportunity to see the ongoing construction works around this iconic and historic structure.
The iconic North Bridge is a three-span structure passing directly over Waverley Station and linking the Old and New Towns, which are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In its current form, the bridge was constructed circa 1895, and although remedial maintenance work has been completed over the years, this has been difficult due to access limitations.
The £20M project is designed to extend the life of this historic bridge and create a structure that over the next 25 years will not require any further works, other than inspection and minor maintenance.
