Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety (CROSS) newsletter No. 52

In this article, we summarise CROSS newsletter No. 52 from Structural-Safety. This newsletter includes reports demonstrating deficiencies and near-misses on projects large and small. The bearings on a major new bridge have caused concern. A support post for a street sign fractured, sadly causing a fatality. There have been several reported collapses, and a grey area has been identified whereby walls were removed in a multistorey building without permission having been obtained. As a variation on our usual theme, a success story demonstrating good engineering practice is also included.
