Failure of bridges due to scour is of great concern to bridge asset owners, and is currently very difficult to predict and monitor regularly using conventional assessment methods. This paper presents evidence of how InSAR techniques can be used to monitor bridges at risk of scour, using Tadcaster Bridge, England, as a case study. Tadcaster Bridge suffered a partial collapse due to river scour on the evening of December 29th, 2015 following a period of severe rainfall and flooding. SAR scenes over the bridge from the two-year period prior to the collapse are analysed using SBAS interferometry methods, highlighting a distinct movement in the region of the bridge where the collapse occurred prior to the actual event. This precursor to failure observed in the data suggests the possible use of InSAR in structural health monitoring of bridges at risk of scour, as a means of an early warning system.
