Sleeving Beats Cable Corrosion. Sulphurous fumes emitted by steam trains passing under the British Railways bridge at Lodge Road, London, corroded away the steel joists supporting the bridge. In the 22 years since the bridge was first opened the damage had become so extensive that a major rebuilding was scheduled recently. The fumes caused particularly acute corrosion in the mild‐steel pipes encasing three 66,000‐V two‐core oil‐filled high‐tension and associated pilot cables laid under the south footway and supported by mild‐steel R.S.J.s suspended from the main bridge girders.
