Analysis: Open access with automated bridge inspections


Routine inspection and testing of the cables on a cablestayed bridge in Saint Maurice in Switzerland was carried out in half the time it would have taken with traditional practices due to automated methods. In addition, the work, which took place last summer, enabled restrictions to traffic to be kept to a minimum.
