Incremental Launch Bridges: UK Practice and Some Foreign Comparisons

The recent successful completion of two major incremental launch bridges in the UK - Dornoch Firth Bridge and River Ceiriog Viaduct - has refocused attention on this form of construction after a break of nearly 15 years. The paper sets out the philosophy behind their design and construction compared to both the earlier examples built in the UK and some of their foreign counterparts. F.N. Rowley
