SUPPORT FOR BAM NUTTALL’S CHISWICK BRIDGE REFURBISHMENT PROJECT
The pontoon was loaded at our yard in Greenwich with a welfare unit, two 6-ton cherry pickers, together with a variety of other equipment, and then mobilised to Chiswick with our tug ‘Devious’ and multi-cat ‘Jack D’.
The pontoon was anchored in each bridge arch for around 10 days to allow repair works and surveys to be carried out.
The planning for this job was crucial as we had to keep to a very tight schedule, especially when the centre arch was shut, as this made navigating through the bridge difficult during low water.
The work was carried out safely and on schedule.
