Ham Island Bridge Refurbishment

  • Sector:Water & Utilities
  • Client:eight2O (CABV JV)
  • Location:Ham Island, Old Windsor
  • Value:£455k

This project involved the refurbishment and strengthening of an existing vehicular access bridge, which was displaying signs of severe corrosion. The bridge spans a spur section of the River Thames; connecting the “mainland” of Old Windsor to Ham Island.

To enable the works to take place under the bridge Barhale secured a permit with the Environment Agency (EA) to block the river from early November 2016 until late January 2017, with a temporary pontoon system. The majority of work was then permitted to take place from on top of this pontoon.
