Family fair builds bridges

WATCH OUT for the 'Constructing the Future' fair on 10 July.

Aimed at getting young people interested in civil engineering, it will include interactive displays and bridge building competitions.

Fresh from their efforts at Civils 98, the Royal Engineers will demonstrate their world record breaking temporary bridge building skills, and put volunteers through an assault course. Fifty companies are

taking stands at the fair.

Thames Valley chairman and organiser of the event Bob Griffiths says: 'Our intention is to create a real family day out with plenty to keep our younger visitors occupied.

'But I'm sure practising engineers will welcome the opportunity to increase their CPD hours by attending free lectures on varied subjects from the design of roller-coasters to legal issues in construction'.
