Whilst opening the gate to a disused site the lower hinge failed resulting in the gate dropping approximately 2 inches.

Due to the failure of the lower hinge it was felt the upper hinge may be susceptible to failure also, especially with the requirement for repeated opening during the works. The gate was manoeuvred to an open position and heras fencing panels hired to secure the site.
