The twenty-first meeting of the Bridge Owners' Forum took place on Tuesday 15th May 2007 at King's College, Cambridge.

A this meeting the Bridge Owners heard presentations on the inspection of main suspension cables on the Forth Road Bridge and the M48 Severn Bridge.

Following a Call for Research Proposals issued on the 8th May, we recieved 36 research proposals for discussion at BOF21. In order to allow more time for proper consideration of these proposals it was agreed to hold an extra meeting (BOF21a) on Wednesday 18th July.
