Paul Livesey, CROSS Scheme Manager presents at Bridges 2024

Region: CROSS-UK Published: 21 March 2024


We were delighted to be at Bridges 2024 last week, with Paul Livesey presenting on behalf of CROSS at the CBS Arena in Coventry. The annual event, organised by Bridge Design & Engineering magazine, drives the debate at the heart of the UK's bridge community and featured a series of high-quality presentations from top-level engineers, bridge owners and specialists in the industry.

Paul’s speech focused on CROSS, our history and how to report near misses and precursors events.

For bridges, examples of such precursors could include the unexpected failure of a bridge element, including structural support to bearings, joints, and parapets, structural cracking which appears or reopens after repair, or other symptoms of distress which cannot be explained.
