Taziker to repaint Clifton Suspension Bridge

Posted on by in Weekly News

Taziker Industrial has been awarded the multi-million-pound refurbishment contract for the iconic Grade I listed Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol.

The bridge will benefit from a new paint system to the suspension chain links, parapet stanchions, and lattice work, as well as the installation of a modern architectural lighting system.

The 1,500-tonne bridge was originally designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and is considered to be one of the engineering marvels of the 19th century. It remains a visible reminder of the Victorian engineer’s prowess, standing tall and with most of its original features intact.

Neil Harrison, CEO, Taziker said: “We are delighted to be awarded such a prestigious project which will see this outstanding heritage structure continue to be enjoyed by future generations to come. It is a true testament of our reputation as conservation specialists to be trusted with a landmark that means so much to the public.”

Trish Johnson, Bridgemaster, Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust said: “Protecting and maintaining Clifton Suspension Bridge for the years to come is crucial and the new paint system will provide protection from corrosion, as well as enhancements through the new lighting system. With Taziker’s experience of bridge refurbishment projects, they are ideally suited to carry out this work, and we are very much looking forward to working together.”
