The procedure for planning and organizing a county bridge renewal program is examined and recommendations made for inspection, determination of priorities and arranging for the work to be spread over a period of years. Standardization of design and construction methods are are commented on, and also the maintenance and strengthening of existing structures to ensure a sustained renewal rate designed to provide an even flow of work on design and construction. Attention is drawn to the importance of co-ordination at National Roads Board level with a view to the full employment of available forces on renewal and, where possible, extending the life of existing structures. /Author/
