Yorkshire Dales 7 Bridges

The Nation Park made use of Structural Civil Consultants expertise in timber for bridge inspections. Many consultants have either knowledge in bridges or timber, but we have experience in both. 


Timber, especially oak or greenheart, will last for many decades but only if properly detailed. The common problem is inclusion of perishable sapwood instead of durable heartwood.

Rion Antirion Corinth Gulf Bridge

The Rion Antirion Bridge across the Gulf of Corinth consists of five cable-stayed spans and four pylons. It is one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world and required 22,000 tonnes of steel fabrication. The bridge, which measures 2,880 metres long, is an engineering marvel. It recieved the 'Oustanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award' from the American Society of Civl Engineers in 2004.
