In April 1991 many of you will have seen moving coverage, in newspapers and on television, of the plight of Kurdish refugees.

This paper gives the background investigation made into the provision of new access systems for two major steel bridges constructed in the early 1950s. The selection process led to a design, construct and erect contract completed in 1989.
