Scaffolding the Bascules nears completion

Work on erecting the scaffolding around the bascules nears completion. 

Specialist painting contractors have now started to restore the South West Turnstile and the fencing surrounding the Control Cabin on the South Tower.

The new paintwork, which has a life expectancy of 25 years, is essential to protect the steelwork and preserve the bridge for future generations.
