Management of state heritage significant bridges

The RTA NSW manages 31 timber truss bridges and two timber beam bridges that are assessed as being of State heritage significance. These bridges were designed to carry a traffic loading significantly lower than the current traffic. While these bridges have served NSW well for around 100 years their continued service requires proactive management. This paper discusses 1. How each of the elements that comprise the Bridge contributes to its overall significance; 2. Analysis of form and fabric of each element and determination of what constitutes significant form and fabric; 3. Structural capacity of each element to carry current loads; and 4. Development of a heritage sympathetic approach to rehabilitation and strengthening for the Hinton Bridge to the required level and minimise the future maintenance costs.
