Watch: Case Study – the case for regeneration over replacing bridge structures

This talk was first presented at the NCE Bridges Design & Management conference on 28 June.

Hewson Consulting Engineers director Andrew Hodgkinson and principal engineer Michael Duvall provide a case study on refurbishing a bridge rather than replacing it.

They discuss the decision making process used to determine how to rehabilitate the A13 River Lea Bridge in London. The proximity of the river, overhead cables and two additional bridges either side of the bridge were among the project’s complexities. Their work included developing replacement solutions for the structure while maintaining traffic flows, as well as designing a range of refurbishment options.

This case study examines the in-depth research undertaken by the project team and the methodology deployed to arrive at an appropriate solution for the bridge.
