Confined spaces bat survey of London bridge
Client: Parsons Brinckerhoff / Transport for London
Location: Chiswick Bridge, Hounslow, London
Repairs were required to the Chiswick Bridge crossing the River Thamas. Potential bat activity had been observed by non-licenced contractors, and an internal inspection by a confined-spaces trained bat ecologist was required.
On behalf of the client Wildwood Ecology:
- A licenced bat ecologist holding confined-space qualifications undertook a bat scoping survey within 24hrs of first contact
- Confirmed the absence of bats from the structure
Works were allowed to proceed with very little delay following the initial contact.
