    Uk Big Bridge, Season 2 | Episode 9

    Hang on tight and don't look down as World's Toughest Fixes scales the iconic bridges of the UK: 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 bridges, three big problems, three tough fixes. In London, it's the famous Tower Bridge, with a serious lead contamination problem. In Scotland, it's all high access. 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's rappelling down a 296-foot suspender cable, swinging in mid-air to run data cables to a high-tech monitoring system. It's a tour of some of the biggest fixes across the pond, meeting the men who are taking on the hazards to get the job done, on World's Toughest Fixes.
