Gobbins Path geotechnical advisor call

shutterstock 709208191 gobbins

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council has said that it is seeking a consulting engineer to provide geotechnical advice for its popular tourist Gobbins Path route.

More than £6M was invested in the path in 2014 to restore a Victoria-era walkway that that winds past and through the basalt sea cliffs, which are up to 60m in height.

Byrne Looby undertook geotechnical design for the walkway which features 15 bridges, including tubular bridges and cable stay structures.

Under the current tender call, the council is seeking a consult to start immediately on a three month initiative to review the daily and monthly monitoring and data collected to date, as well as undertake a rope access inspection of the cliff faces. The final report will include recommendation and design of any necessary remedial works.
