But what happens when these engineering marvels are on the verge of disaster? In IMPOSSIBLE FIXES, viewers meet the dedicated maintenance crews who race against the clock to ensure critical infrastructures are operating as designed every day. In California, fearless technicians' work at terrifying heights to keep a famous tramway safe.
