London’s Albert Bridge unlikely to open in 2011

Renovation work on the Albert Bridge, spanning the Thames between Chelsea and Battersea in London, is set to continue until the end of the year, over one year after it was originally proposed to reopen.

The 138-year-old bridge has been closed since February 2010 and was due to open at the end of last year.

However, inspection consultant Hyder and contractor Interserve discovered the bridge was in a worse
condition than anticipated. In addition, Interserve has been hampered by scaffolding constraints pushing back the reopening date towrds 2012.
