Polyethylene wraps on Tower Bridge

Polyethylene wraps have now been applied to the scaffolding which surrounds the Tower Bridge bascules. This special shrinkwrap material is heat boded to form a seamless enclosure around the scaffolding, which will prevent particles of paint or dust escaping into the natural environment.
