    Medieval Bridge – Azerbaijan

    Client: Multinational Oil Company

    This project involved the effects of nearby pipeline construction works on the ruins of a medieval bridge located on part of the Silk Road in western Azerbaijan. 

    WJM&P were engaged by environmental experts advising the Oil Company to carry out a structural appraisal of the condition of the ruins in the light of the proposed works and advise on suitable safeguarding measures both during the works and in the long term.  We visited the site to examine the ruins and discuss our proposals with representatives of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.  The proposals we developed were based on current best practice, taking into account the resources available locally.  The safeguarding measures will be implemented by an Azerbaijani contractor.
