  • Engineering longer lives for bridgesexternal link
    Bridges are an integral part of today's road and rail transport network, but maintaining them puts significant strain on public finances. The EU-funded project Long Life Bridges has found a way to keep them safe at lower cost. It has also built a prototype of a device designed to extend the lifetime of bridge cables.

    A research project funded by the European Commission has led to a potential breakthrough for the rail sector - by adapting light weight materials most commonly found in high performance racing cars. The results promise to provide the rail industry with trains that are more environmentally-friendly, easier and cheaper to produce, and less costly for rail companies in terms of track maintenance. An all round win-win situation.
