About Bridges Scotland

Following last year's highly successful eBridges Scotland with almost 1,300 attendees from 40 countries (!), this 1-2 December will see the return of the Bridges Scotland in-person event - with gold sponsor Mabey Bridge - at the SEC in Glasgow.

Discover new ways of working, gain knowledge of best practice and learn about the latest new products, concepts and services covering bridge design, maintenance and construction - in person for maximum networking opportunities or virtually from your office desk.

The Bridge design & engineering team already has a number of great sessions lined up for this year's conference including:
  • Garden Bridge over the M8
  • Managing the risk of scour & flooding at bridges on Scotland's railway
  • Scottish experience of post-tensioned structures
  • Half-joints, assessment & management to CS466
  • Standardised design can be excellent design
  • Repair & refurbishment of the Union Chain Bridge
  • Forth Road Bridge expansion joint replacement
  • Replacing Scotland's most bashed into bridge & more

The ever-popular Bridges Scotland Ten/20 format will also return, where anyone can submit an emerging project or other bright idea for consideration by our panel of experts hosted by Donald MacPherson, Chair of the Bridges Group of The Society of Chief Officers of Transportation in Scotland. Those chosen will get to deliver their message in a quick-fire presentation - ten slides which automatically forward every 20 seconds! It's fast and fun and chosen to add breadth and colour to the more formal seminar proceedings. Please email your submissions to j.sanchez@hgluk.com by 19 November.

Bridges Scotland is brought to you by Bridge Events from Bridge design & engineering - the only magazine dedicated to the international bridge sector - along with the annual Bridges conference, exhibition, workshops & Bridges Awards.
