Description

The project consisted of replacing a total of 4 gas fired boilers serving the two high level walkways spanning Tower Bridge. Although a relatively small project the nature of the bridge made it particularly demanding.

The boiler rooms are located in oppsoite towers and two levels below street level. The old boilers had to be dismantled into small sections and man handled up narrow staircases housing the redundant steam mechanism which once operated the bridge.

As there was no parking allowed on the bridge all materials and plant had to be carried across the bridge.

The project was successfully completed with no risk to the public or the installation team. The work was physically demanding but the reward was the privilege of working on one of London's most iconic landmarks.
