Preston’s Road Flyover, London
The bearing shelf of the flyover at Preston’s Road in East London had become heavily infested with many breeding pairs of pigeons. The management company responsible for maintenance of the flyover had incurred significant costs to clean the nests and faeces, and pedestrians passing under the flyover had suffered from spoilage of clothing. On 21 July 2015, 4,150 dishes of 小島Bird Free were applied to the bearing shelf and flanges of the eastern end of the flyover. Further inspections of the site in October 2015 and September 2016 have confirmed that the infestation has been eliminated. Although the gel had become discoloured in such a dirty environment,
小島Bird Free remains effective.
On 12 October 2015, three months after installation, Tony Ruiz, Project Manager at Road Management Services A13, commented:
“As part of our contract with the Ministry of Transport we must inspect all structures on the part of the A13 which we manage every three years. If a structure is infested with pigeons we have to clean it before we can carry out an inspection. We decided to install Bird Free on the flyover to eliminate the necessity for cleaning.
“So far, we are very pleased with results. Since Bird Free was installed all the pigeons that were living beneath the flyover have left. During a recent inspection there was no sign of any pigeons at all.”
