Tower Bridge works completed

Tower Bridge refurb

Tower Bridge has reopened more than a week ahead of schedule after major maintenance works were undertaken.

The City of London Corporation said thanks to planning and good weather the works were completed just before Christmas.

The works were carried out by Bam Nuttall.

The works included replacement of the decking on the bascules, corrosion prevention and repair operations, replacement of worn expansion joints, resurfacing of fixed roads and walkways, waterproofing of approach viaducts, an overhaul of key mechanical and lift components and general repairs to the towers.

“I’m very pleased with how smoothly the works have gone over the last three months,” said Tower Bridge head Chris Earlie. “I am looking forward to seeing traffic going over Tower Bridge again and I hope motorists enjoy the brand new, smooth road surface.”
