Restore Iron Structures
January 2014 – England’s wettest January since records began, brought staggering Spring tides resulting in considerable disruption and widespread flooding and damage to properties along with coastal infrastructure for many coastlines in the South West of England. Movement of the river wall to south of Clarence Road, Redcliff, Bristol was noted after considerable flooding of the River Avon in the area. Craddys, a Bristol City Council approved consultant, were appointed to carry out an initial investigation to determine the mode and mechanism of failure. Following additional gross movement of the footpath in August 2014, Craddys were again called upon to come up with urgent stabilisation measures for the river wall for the section between the Bedminister Bridge Roundabout and Langton Street Bridge (Banana Bridge).
