About this event

Reconstruction of the Tadcaster road bridge 

Invitation from the ICE Retired Members. 
Speaker: David Bowe - Director, Business & Environmental Services (NYCC)

The partial collapse of the listed 18th century bridge over the River Wharfe in Tadcaster became a symbol of the severity of the Christmas floods of 2015, particularly when footage of the collapse was shown on news bulletins around the world. The town was split, so with a 10mile detour for vehicles to cross the Wharfe, the pressure was on to find and deliver a solution as quickly as possible and manage the expectations of local residents and businesses. This talk will cover the technical decisions and problems arising from the initial collapse through to site investigation, design, approvals, procurement and construction, together with the focus on managing public information and expectations, leading to the reopening in February 2017. 
Lunch will be available after the lecture - cost £14 p.p. (pre-book only; payable on the day).
Booking is essential for this event.
