In December 2017, XEIAD completed the Principal Inspection of the QE2 Bridge which carries the A282 section of the M25 over the River Thames for our client Connect Plus Services.

The QE2 Bridge is a significantly complex structure standing at over 130m tall and running for nearly 3km, we used a range of access methods such as confined space, rope access, the use of mobile working platforms and UAV’s to be able to access all the parts of the structure.

We have worked on the QE2 Bridge for over 12 years so were the best placed Engineering Consultant to take on this large and complex Principal Inspection. Our past experience included the previous two Principal Inspections, the annual Bearing Inspections, General Inspections and various Special Inspections at strategic locations.

To complete the inspection of the pylons, our rope access trained Inspection Engineers and Technicians pulled over 11km of rope from the top of the pylons – that’s half a tonne being hauled 80m by hand!
