Bridge inspection and reporting procedures

This paper deals with the general factors and considerations involved in systematic bridge inspections and the recording of inspection results required for safety and preventative maintenance of road bridges. It is suggested that the recording of bridge inspections should be integrated with a computerised bridge inventory data bank which itself should be referenced to and form part of the road data. The experience and general considerations involved in developing, within the Highways Department of South Australia, a bridge inventory system including computer production of inspection reports is described (a).
