Guide to bridge technology, part 6: bridge construction

Austroads Guide to Bridge Technology provides bridge owners and agencies with advice on bridge ownership, design procurement, vehicle and pedestrian accessibility, and bridge maintenance and management practices. The Guide has eight parts. To ensure that bridges are properly constructed in accordance with the design drawings and specifications, engineers need to be well-informed on all aspects of their design and construction, including awareness of the problems that may arise and the levels of the various risks associated with their realisation. They need to know the important quality, safety, environmental and other issues relating to each activity before the activity is undertaken. This Part provides guidance to the bridge owner's representative on site and focuses on bridge technology, high-risk construction processes, e.g. piling, pre-stressing, and the relevant technical surveillance requirements during the construction phase. Bridge geometry, the management of existing road traffic and temporary works are also discussed. This Part also discusses activities related to the processes of bridge demolition and removal, as well as after bridge completion and handover.
