Taziker Forth Road Bridge aircraft warning light replacement scaffold

Alan White Design were delighted to be involved on this project on the iconic Forth Road Bridge.

The project involved replacing the existing aircraft warning lights at the top of the bridge, which had reached their end of lifespan. Temporary works access was required at the top of the bridge towers and we completed the design for our client Taziker.

The scaffold would grant access to operatives to remove and replace the existing lights. A panoramic camera was also installed during the installation of the new lights. The scaffold was required to provide safe access and had to connect easily to existing bridge structure as well as including a 500kg SWL lifting hoist.
AWD designed an access platform with scaffold beams and tube-and-fit scaffold components. Our engineers created an innovative clamped scaffold beam solution specifically for this project, meaning there was no need for any drilling of the existing bridge structure.
The scaffold solution provided safe access over two levels with edge protection to ensure operative safety. A cantilever scaffold ladder beam solution was installed to the top of the scaffold frame to allow materials to be lifted to the work surface.

The solution provided by AWD allowed safe access to all areas of the aircraft warning lights for the duration of the project. We provided a package of 3D scaffold drawings which assisted the scaffold contractor and our design integrated with the permanent structure seamlessly.
