Engineers at the council have defended work done as part of the Headland Sea Defences scheme. Work on the £9.5million scheme, which aims to strengthen Headland sea defences against erosion, has faced criticism from residents despite it recently being nominated for an engineering award. Coping stones on a new ramp fell out in December sparking an investigation by Hartlepool Borough Council, while in January two more large stones at the top of the sea wall near Sea View Terrace had moved out of position.Experts at the council say they are looking into concerns of an increased noise and vibration from the scheme.Council senior engineer Kieran Bostock, speaking at a council community forum, said work on the scheme is not yet complete but they decided to open the area over the winter due to public demand.He added the work was safe and stable and prompt action was taken to the reported faults.He said: “The bulk of the main work was completed last October so we took the decision … [Read more...] about Hartlepool Borough Council engineer defends Headland Sea Defence work

ENGINEERS warn up to 300 more bridges are at risk of collapse in Italy - as it's revealed 20 more people are feared dead following the Genoa disaster. Around 70 per cent of the country's of 15,000 motorway bridges and tunnels were built more than 40 years ago and hundreds are not designed for today's heavy traffic. Lack of investment, poor maintenance and the involvement of mafia-run building companies using poor quality concrete could all contribute to more deadly disasters like the one on Tuesday. “They have problems that, if not addressed in time, could potentially lead to structural failures,” a leading structural engineer told La Repubblica newspaper. “The problem is not so much knowing which structures are at risk, but having the money to finance repairs and maintenance,” said the expert, who asked to remain anonymous. Among the structures he claimed was at risk was the Magliana Bridge in Rome, which flows between the city centre and the capital’s … [Read more...] about Hundreds more Italian bridges and tunnels at risk of collapsing including a major tourist route from Rome airport, experts warn
Domino's This week, Domino's announced that it has started paying construction crews to fill potholes in towns across the US. The goal, according to the food-delivery giant, is to protect its pizzas. Experts say the initiative is part of a wider trend of companies taking over the upkeep of civic services traditionally funded by government. Infrastructure spending as a percentage of the nation's GDP has fallen to the lowest level in decades, according to the US Census Bureau. Domino's is on a mission to fix America's roads. This week, the pizza chain announced that it is paying construction crews to fill potholes in towns across the US, with the goal of protecting its pizzas from bumps. "We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal," Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA, said in a statement. "Domino's cares too much about its customers and pizza to let that happen." Domino's has already worked with several cities, … [Read more...] about Domino’s is repairing roads, and experts say it reveals a troubling trend in American spending
