Lessons learned from the collapse of a new footbridge over a live highway during construction, resulting in a tragic loss of life.

This presentation, part of the Institution's Technical Lecture Series, looked at the bridge collapse and the reasoning for the subsequent CROSS Safety Alert.

It examined:

  • What happened in the lead up to the collapse

  • Why the collapse happened

  • What can be learned by the industry to avoid a repeat event


It gave recommendations, thoughts for the future, and further reading materials. All of this was aimed at preventing a future tragedy.
 

Who should watch:

All those involved in the design and execution of bridges and other structures
