The new road bridge at Nathdwara in India is part of a mammoth project to build 50 miles (80 km) of new road and bridges to link the key cities of Gomti Chouraha and Udaipur in Rajasthan. It’s going to make a huge difference to the lives of commuters, saving time and money travelling in the region.
The bridge at Nathdwara though, has a steep curve in it and needed seismic stoppers to stop the bridge sliding in an earthquake.
But the stoppers had to be inserted while the bridge was in construction and that wasn’t easy to do, as it was difficult to drill deeply into the reinforced columns that were already in place.
So we were asked to find a solution.
