Protection and flood proofing of masonry bridges, arches and parapets ensuring optimal flood resistance
The unique parapet strengthening system offered by Goldhawk Bridge Restoration Ltd can also be used to strengthen parapets against flood forces.
We also have expertise in scour control and in constructing aprons around pier foundations. Our sister company, StressUK Ltd, offer a unique foundation rescue service to strengthen the ground under existing foundations.
The MARS System
A significant benefit of the MARS System is that it can be be used to flood proof masonry bridges.
Initial damage to parapet
Under flood conditions, often, the parapet is the first to fail.
Catastrophic flood damage
The uplift pressure from the flood waters can cause the barrel to fail.
Preservation and restoration
The MARS System prevents the barrel from breaking up and preserves the integrity of the bridge.
