Woodmill Bridge, Southampton

Woodmill Bridge, Southampton


Whelan Pest Prevention were chosen over a number of companies to remove Guano and install Bird Protection systems on the Woodmill Bridge in Southampton. The levels of Guano were unacceptably high and the bearings inspectors were most concerned of the consequential damage. As a result a thorough clean was required by our specialist team of Bird Protection specialists.


The bridge is located on one of the busiest main roads in Hampshire. Whelan Pest Prevention took total control of the project and quickly set up an “Operations room” at the Southampton Office. Everything from traffic management to installing the nets, including RAMS, were taken care of by Whelan Pest Prevention limited. Following a rigorous and thorough survey we implemented a full method statement and risk assessment.


Our skilled team of Operatives proceeded to clear the heavy build up of Guano and sanitised and cleaned the bearings so that the inspectors can inspect the bearings in the future. We also installed a bird protection system in the form of Pigeon nets to protect the bridge form the ingression of Pigeons and other birds. Whelan Pest prevention specialise in this area we are SAFEcontractor approved our method statement and attention to detail have been praised by many of the large organisations in the construction and Highways industry.


“The clearance of the Bridge had to be done with a high level of attention to detail, the contract at Woodmill is extremely high profile meaning all programmed works had to be carefully planned and undertaken to ensure there was no impact to the surrounding ecology or neighbourhood. The Team that attended was extremely knowledgeable & practical with a ‘hands on’ approach. Chemicals and work method were changed several times to minimise risk & disturbance, leading to a professional job completed within the tight programme. I would have no hesitation in using his company again & would recommend him for similar contract works.”
