World's Toughest Fixes Big Bridge

Hang on tight and don’t look down as we scale the iconic bridges of the UK: the world-famous Tower Bridge in London, and the historic Forth Bridge and Forth Road Bridge in Scotland. Riley will help construct scaffolding, 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.
