Tomlinson Lift Bridge
Posted February 17, 2022, by Gary J Michell PLS (gjm13 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Hello,

I really enjoy your web site,

From 2000, until completion of the bridge in 2002, I had the pleasure of being the Project Surveyor responsible for all line and grade information used by the constructor to successfully erect the Bridge.

The complexities and challenges of constructing the spans and superstructure, as well as "floating the span" into place on the astronomic high tide, were very rewarding in the end.

Regards,

Gary
