<< Back to case studies    



Investigative work on Tuckton Bridge, which spans the River Stour between Tuckton and Christchurch, found that essential repairs were needed to the concrete structure along with improvements to the bridge deck drainage and resurfacing to the carriageway.

Tuckton Bridge was built in 1904 and was one of the first reinforced concrete structures in the country. Heavily used each day by pedestrians and motorists, contractors from Bournemouth Borough Council’s Planning, Transport and Regulation Services found that sections of the concrete structure were in desperate need of repair.

Once repairs were completed on the concrete substructure and abutments, Epicuro’s Hydrophobic Bridgeguard was chosen to increase the concrete surface’s lifespan and reduce the need for costly maintenance and cleaning in the future.

Epicuro Hydrophobic Bridgeguard is perfectly suited to high footfall structures and its unique formula is designed to penetrate the concrete’s surface to form an invisible yet breathable barrier which repels water and oily liquids whilst also resisting road dirt, graffiti, salts, vegetation and other surface contaminants.
