Connel Bridge Inspection

Tasked with the bridge inspection via rope access of the Connel Bridge near Oban, Scotland, the SG Access rope access bridge inspection team carried out a detailed condition survey of all steel elements of the bridge, the concrete soffit, and a full measured survey under deck to inform forthcoming works.

Mode of access: Rope access

Task in hand: Bridge inspection & measured survey via rope access

Location: Oban, Scotland

Team Size: 4

Duration: 1 month

The SG Access rope access bridge inspection team were deployed to Oban, Scotland, to carry out a full inspection of the Connel Bridge, primarily aid climbing to gain access to all areas, allowing a through inspection of each element of the bridge above and below deck.

The Connel Bridge is a category B listed cantilever steel bridge spanning Loch Etieve. The bridge has a span of 160 m with a suspended central span of 71m, and was first opened in 1903 as a railway bridge, but was later modified and now takes the A828 road across the loch at its narrowest point.

A complex structure, the inspection of which required the gathering and collating of vast amounts of  detailed data whilst working in a challenging work environment, we are proud of our team for a job well done and providing a comprehensive report for our client, and we count ourselves extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend a month working in such a spectacular location inspecting what is a truly a magnificent structure.
