Fairfield Control Systems has been awarded the contract to upgrade the fibre network at the Humber Bridge. The upgrade will secure the ongoing operation of the existing systems, provide increased network speeds for modern technologies, allow new systems to be added to the network and provide continuous monitoring of the network’s operations.
The fibre network is essential for bridge control and monitoring systems.
Our Industrial ICT team will work collaboratively with the engineering team at Humber Bridge to ensure the new network is secure, resilient and installed with minimum disruption.
The Humber Bridge has the world’s twelfth -longest suspension bridge span. It is located to the West of Kingston upon Hull in East Yorkshire and connects the North and south banks of the Humber estuary, carrying around 10 million vehicles per year.
The main bridge has an overall length of 2220 meters with a main span of 1410 metres between the two towers and two side spans, Hessle side span at 280 metres and Barton side span at 530 metres.
Oliver Mangham, our Applications Director, “We are delighted to be awarded a project on such an iconic bridge in the UK. We look forward to working collaboratively with the team at Humber Bridge to deliver a secure and resilient solution.”
