The words of the well-known nursery rhyme London Bridge is falling down are not too far from the truth. By the 1820s one of the city’s most iconic landmarks was too narrow, too decrepit and, above all, too dangerous to be used to cross the Thames. In 1831 a new bridge, made of granite, was completed. Some 130 years later, however, the robust 19th construction was in a similar state to its 12th century predecessor. With experts maintaining that the bridge was sinking about an inch every eight years, something had to be done.
