Rochester Old Bridge Refurbishment

Client: Rochester Bridge Trust
Value: £700,000

Built in 1914, Rochester Old Bridge is a Grade II Listed Structure. Jackson was contracted to carry out refurbishment works to the bridge to improve the appearance of the upstream section, by de-constructing, blasting, coating and reassembling the balustrade, and laying new paving to the footway.

Crucially, the works also included replacing corroded structural steel balustrade posts and the supporting edge-stiffener channel, a pre-fabricated ‘C’ section.

The project involved work to three spans of the bridge, and a cantilever scaffold was required over the river to gain access. Due to its Grade II listing, all works were carried out in accordance with the requirements of English Heritage.
