Bridges and highway structures


We regularly inspect our bridges and highway structures. We do this to ensure they remain in a safe condition and identify whether they need maintenance.

  • General inspections - these involve a visual inspection of the structure from ground level or other suitable vantage points in line with national guidelines.
  • Principal inspections - these take place for larger or more important structures in addition to general inspections. They involve a closer inspection of all visible and accessible parts of the structure. They may require lane closures and access equipment to allow us to get as close as we need to.
