Repairing the Forth Road Bridge

In December 2015 work to repair defects in the steelwork began on the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland.

This large suspension bridge spans just over 2.5 kilometres in length and its longest span is 1006 metres between the two main towers. These towers are constructed of welded cellular high tensile steel and rise up over 150 metres above high water level.

Much of the work was undertaken with the use of abseil harnesses. The footage shown here was taken by a drone.



Do you have a project that is requiring the use of fall arrest or rope access harnesses? Our Raptor Rigid Rail system is a proprietary fall arrest and rope access system suitable for multiple users and depending on the application is a safe and compliant option for fall arrest and rope access. View our Raptor videos for more information.

When choosing to install a fall arrest system your selection needs to be carefully considered. Please view our video "The Selection & Use Of Fall Arrest Equipment" for more important information when installing and using this type of equipment.
