JAPANESE ENGINEERS from Nippon Steel Corporation visited Scotland's Forth Road Bridge last week to work out how £12M of dehumidication equipment could be installed to curb main suspension cable corrosion. Cables were opened up in 2005 (NCE 6 January 2005) and found to be rusting, with some wires having snapped altogether. This has reduced the load-carrying capacity of the bridge.
