© 2019 IABSE. All rights reserved. The Marsh Lane viaduct is a masonry railway bridge constructed during the 19th century nearby Leeds Central Railway Station. The bridge appears significantly damaged due to the increase of the operational train loads over the last decades and due to environmental effects. Due to this degradation, extensive repair was conducted in 2015. After this repair work, an extensive fibre optic sensor network was installed below three spans of the bridge to monitor surface strains at 68 locations on the underside of the arch spans. The paper compares data collected from two monitoring periods, 16 months apart. Combining statistical analysis and signal processing techniques, the results show that local damage, as well as change in the global dynamic behaviour of the structure over time, can be effectively detected with the use of Fibre Bragg Grating sensors.
