Contractor Infallible Systems specified IKO Permatrack for the renovation of the walkways, approaches and tower bases of London’s Tower Bridge.
Over 120 years old, the Tower Bridge was closed in September 2016 for three months while repairs were made. However, the job was completed one week ahead of schedule.
John Chapman of Infallible explains that when work started on the main piers, it was discovered that the asphalt that needed to be removed was much thicker than expected at 160mm thick. It was replaced with a 10mm IKO waterproofing layer and IKO Permatrack Bridge Surfacing to an average depth of 30mm.
800 tonnes of material was broken out, cleared, and reinstated without the use of lorries or machinery due to the weight restrictions on the bridge.
Infallible Systems has been an IKO customer since the contractor was founded over 30 years ago. IKO’s work on the Tower Bridge has since been shortlisted in the Mastic Asphalt/Hot Melt category in the NFRC Awards 2017.
