We recommend the larger enclosed end posts also be cleaned and de-rusted in future. These are full of rubbish and pose a needle stick hazard so a suction machine would be required.


  1. Treat all 6 small nest of rollers on both abutments and pier 4 with Roller Rehab Bath to be filled with degreaser, Action Gel and Lanocoat oil.
  2. Suction out rubbish from 8 larger enclosed end posts, clear out holes and paint. Fit wire mesh to collect rubbish.
  3. Re Grease bearings in 5 years.
