Work has started on a multi-year programme to paint the QEII bridge at Dartford.
Specialist crews from engineering firm Jackson Civil Engineering are working at night during the first phase to overcoat exposed areas to provide a protective layer to the bridge’s exterior.
They work from maintenance gantries beneath the bridge to access the work areas.
Jackson is working with supply chain partners Taziker on the project with the first phase due to be completed by the end of October.
Further to this year’s works the wider project team is looking at improving access to these areas and developing working methods for future years works.
“It’s exciting and rewarding working collaboratively with Connect Plus and within the integrated team of M25 Community members, formed to deliver this multi-year strategy of works on one of the most iconic structures in the Southeast, commented Ryan Smith, Framework Manager at Jackson Civil Engineering.
