The Rochester Bridge Trust has been named as a finalist in the Bridges Awards 2023, for its Net Zero Carbon Management of Rochester Bridge.
Working with Term Maintenance Contractor FM Conway, the Trust reduced emissions for core maintenance activities by more than 88%, with the remaining residual emissions offset by tree planting.
This work has now been recognised with a shortlisting in the Bridges Management category of the peer-reviewed Bridges Awards.
James Booth, Bridge Manager at the Rochester Bridge Trust, said: “We believe we are the first bridge in the UK – possibly the world – to achieve Net Zero Carbon for our maintenance activities. This shortlisting celebrates that achievement and we also hope it will inspire others to make the necessary changes to reduce their own carbon impact.”
