Utilising Rope Access methods to carry out NDT inspections in difficult to reach places. The Hawthorne Bridge, crossing the Yarra River east of Melbourne, was built with a wrought iron truss design in 1861. It is considered to be one of the oldest metal bridges in Australia, and even time can wreak havoc upon strong metal after many years have passed. The bridge needed to be evaluated. Our clients requested that we survey this bridge to establish the integrity of the structure. A thorough and complete evaluation needed to be made, and we were therefore asked to carry out Non Destructive Testing (NDT), including Magnetic Particle Inspections (MPI), which is an NDT method for testing surface and subsurface issues in certain materials which iron, nickel, and cobalt. Ferroelectirc materials and their alloys are often inspected using MPI methods. Since we specialise in providing access to hard to reach areas, this job was especially appropriate for us. We were able to use Rope Access (Industrial Abseiling) to access the entire bridge, including areas which are normally difficult to access or to get near or inside of, especially over the water. Through Non Destructive Testing methods, we were able to identify any issues and we presented our findings in our report to our client. Hawthorne Bridge is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, and is a valuable asset to the Australian people. Melbourne was changed by the addition to the area of a useful bridge, and the history of the loss and replacement of the Hawthorne Bridge parts was just as important to the local area as the bridge itself later came to be after constructed. RIGCOM prides itself in taking part on looking after heritage structures and building and always carry out the work diligently.
