Milton Keynes Council in collaboration with Highways Contractor, Ringway will be carrying out principal bridge inspections and specialist structural investigation of 10 structures.

It is anticipated that 2 bridges will be inspected in a day between the hours 09:30 – 16:30Hrs.

The timescales for our works: 2 weeks in November 2018.

WEEK 1 - W/C 5th Nov 2018 for 4 days (Monday – Thursday)
