About VolkerLaser - Tintern Wireworks Bride

The Tintern Wireworks Bridge, which lies on the border of Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire, is in poor condition and in need of significant repairs. Works began on site on 8 August 2022 and is expected to take 8 - 9 months to complete. The refurbishment of the bridge will include:

Full removal of the timber deck and replacement with a steel deck to meet the required capacity. This will have a timber look finish to meet heritage requirements
Strengthening of the structure, including the installation of new box beams to replace the existing corroding steel infrastructure
The structure will be fully enclosed for grit blasting and painting
The masonry supports will be repointed to extend their life


The visit will include a careers presentation with an overview of the project, by the project manager and team,  followed by a Q&A session. The visit will finish with a quick tour of the site
