UK Bridges Board introduction

“The vast majority of the public give little thought to bridges as they travel around our transport network until, that is, one has to be closed or restricted due to maintenance works, damage, structural instability or even complete failure. Only then is our reliance on bridges appreciated. The nation’s bridge stock is an extremely valuable asset, the maintenance of which we must invest in if we are to avoid unplanned disruption to communities, industry and the travelling public. In these challenging economic times it is important that we get the greatest possible return on such investment and the UK Bridges Board can play its part in this through collaboration on developments and by sharing best practice.”


Dana Skelley, Chair of UK Bridges Board and Director of Asset Management, Transport for London (TfL)
