Case Studies

Confined spaces bat survey of London bridge

Sector: Highways

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.
