NT1278 : Cable inspection cradle

taken 13 years ago, near to Forth Road Bridge, Edinburgh, Great Britain

Cable inspection cradle.
Cable inspection cradle.
The Forth Road Bridge has a problem, its suffering under modern traffic levels and the usual refusal to spend on infrastructure. Simply it needs backing up.
In 2004 repair work, including spraying with zinc based paint - spray on galvanising, uncovered corrosion in the cables. A detailed survey is required and these cradles enable workers to get at the inner reaches , suspended high above the Firth of Forth.
