Sandwich Toll Bridge

We carried out essential maintenance on the Sandwich Toll Bridge from 21 September 2020 for 11 weeks. This was to ensure reliability, efficiency and the safety of the road.

Due to deterioration, the mechanical and electrical components that enable the bridge to operate needed to be replaced. The refurbishment works ensure the bridge remains safe and operational for both highway and river navigation.

What changed

To carry out the works we:

  • removed the bridge deck
  • replaced the mechanical and electrical components
  • cleaned and repainted the bridge deck
  • upgraded the swing bridge operational procedures
  • repaired the road.
