The Tamar Bridge needed significant repairs and this would have to be undertaken during the period of peak use. This webinar was held on 15 February 2022.

The planning and management of such works needed to be carefully undertaken to minimise the impact on the public and local businesses whilst achieving the full scope of the project in the required timeframe.

Richard has very kindly allowed his presented material to be made available for viewing. The slides on Slideshare and the webinar recording on YouTube are available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for your reference.
