Shaldon Bridge Piers Inspections

“Please tell me what inspections were carried out on the areas where the wooden piles have been located on Shaldon Bridge between 1993 and the last inspection in 2012?”


Dates of the dive inspections that have been carried out on the Shaldon Bridge piers between 1993 and 2012 are: 07/08/2000, 25/10/2000, 31/05/2001, 17/06/2003 and 06/12/2012. 

A dive inspection is a visual inspection of the bridge piers below water level down to the river bed level to check the structure for any damage and to check for scour of the river bed which could undermine the bridge foundations.
