Summary
Hang on tight and don't look down as World's Toughest Fixes scales the iconic bridges of the United Kingdom: the world-famous Tower Bridge in London, and two bridges in Scotland: the historic Forth Bridge and, right next door, the Forth Road Bridge. It's three colossal bridges, three challenging problems, three tough fixes. In London, Tower Bridge has a serious lead contamination problem. Follow these researches as they explore options for protecting the safety of the environment while keeping the bridge intact. In Scotland, it's all high access. Master rigger Sean Riley will help construct scaffolding from the top down, 367 feet above the water, dangling on a pole over speeding trains. And on an aging suspension bridge, Riley rappels down a 296-foot suspender cable, swinging in mid-air to run data cables to a high-tech monitoring system. He'll do whatever it takes to get these perilous jobs done!
