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.
Specialist firm Alpin Technik & Ingenieurservice was employed to carry out a comprehensive inspection of the cables on a cable-stayed highway bridge in Saint Maurice. The inspection was part of the routine maintenance work on the bridge, one of a pair that were built in 1986.
