- Services Provided: MTO Contract for QVE and Design
The Little Current swing bridge underwent a facelift in 2010 which required creative access system design for this specific project. The bridge itself was constructed in 1913 and is under constant criticism for its rough looks, contributing to slowing traffic to Manitouln Island. A temporary multipoint suspended scaffold (MPSS) was designed and installed around all the piers and all spans between to provide access to restore portions of the bridge. This method provided quick installation with the capability to re-use the system for access at other bridges also. In addition to the MPSS system, AJW Engineering has been retained to review and design other various temporary structures such as temporary vehicle crossing and metal barriers, while providing Quality Verification Engineering (QVE) Services assuring that these temporary structures are designed and installed in accordance to the contract documents. These QVE services are notoriously required for most projects with the Ministry of Transportation. This project is still ongoing, contact AJW Engineering at their head office for any inquiries.
