Leading the way with UAV, Bridge Surveys

OTB and our client Ferrovial Laing O'Rourke (Flo) are leading the way in condition surveys of Network Rail bridges using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology.

OTB has been appointed to carry out condition surveys of several bridges within the central section of the Thames Tideway Project prior to, and after, the construction of the main tunnel. Inspections using the Cyberhawk Innovation team and our highly qualified engineers, reduce costs and ensure a safer method of inspection by removing the need for rope access and eliminating track possessions. Our first bridge was successfully completed in September 2018 and we are looking forward to completing the remainder of the identified NR bridges.
