The Holdfast Marina Bridge is a cable stay structure erected in the early 1990s. Corrosion had begun appearing on the superstructure steelwork and required blasting and re-painting in order to extend the life of the bridge and improve presentation.
The works involved;
• Removal and replacement of the timber decking
• Complete encapsulation of the works
• Staging to facilitate uninterrupted traffic movements under the bridge
• Blasting and painting of the steel work in marine conditions
• Replacement of handrail and deck lighting
• Replacement of some structural elements and connections
• Sealing of concealed joints not able to be painted to prevent moisture ingress.
