New Forth Road Bridge contracts
Following the successful bridge gantry project on the new Forth Crossing Eadon have once again been awarded a contract to work on the original Forth Road Bridge.
The contract is to carry out the complete structural, mechanical and electrical design for an additional underdeck bridge maintenance gantry which will service the underside of the main suspended span between the two towers.
The gantry will be used in series with the two existing gantries which will operate on the side spans of the bridge. The basic gantry design will replicate the existing gantries which have been in service for over 30 years, however several significant improvements will be made and the new design will meet the latest standards, the Eurocodes including BS EN 1993-1-1 and the Crane code BS EN 13001 series.
