Jean-Yves Mondon, CEO VSL International says : « The need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the scarcity of resources are forcing us to design differently, to recycle our materials and to invest more in keeping existing structures in use. Changes in urban and interurban transport and the expansion of green or autonomous mobility will all have a decisive impact.”

A52 project, UK: In early 2020, Highways England (HE) discovered some structural issues with the A52 Clifton bridge over the river Trent in Nottingham. When problems were discovered in the bridge, VSL first helped HE by carrying out specialist investigations and structural assessment. Georgios Kostapanos, VSL Deputy Civil Works Manager, says:” Working next to one of the UK’s largest rivers brings a number of challenges. We worked closely with the environment agency and canals and river trust  to gain specific permits to conduct the works over the river.”

Exminster project, UK: The Exminster Viaduct is an essential link carrying the M5 motorway across the Western marshland of the River Exe Estuary and a railway track. The works had become necessary after the design assessment had shown that the existing bridge needed strengthening to be compliant with current updated assessment loadings. Peter Hughes, Managing Director - VSL Systems (UK) Ltd says: « What better way towards a low carbon infrastructure than to make existing assets fit for the future with durable strengthening schemes!”.
