This project entailed the repair and conservation of the cast iron bridge spanning the Canal in London's Regent's Park. The works included the restoration of the cast iron balustrades which had been previously removed.
Works included detailed surveys, costed scheme designs, scheduling of repairs and specification for cleaning and repair of the existing cast iron arch stone abutment structures; research and design of new cast iron balustrade to replace those which had been previously removed including cast iron pedestal base lighting columns; installation of new pre-cast concrete deck and re-routing of exposed services.
Other considerations included the need to maintain access to high voltage power cable networks under the towpath and across adjacent banks also medium voltage cables / water mains running across the bridge together with canal bank stabilisation proposals.
Negotiations also took place with London Zoo / Royal Parks to change the approaches to the Bridge to eliminate the previous segregated dual access routes over the canal.
