  • The Old Tweed Bridge was opened by Sir Walter Scott in 1832 and was the main link between Selkirk and Galashiels for 140 years. The bridge is used by pedestrian traffic and had fallen into a state of disrepair following the opening of the nearby A7 crossing of the Tweed River. Further to a full risk assessment being completed, Edwards fabricated temporary propping and an encapsulation structure underneath and around the bridge to protect the stonemasons (see case study and news article).
