MANAGEMENT OF BRIDGEWORKS MAINTENANCE IN THE UK. BRIDGE MANAGEMENT. INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE, ASSESSMENT AND REPAIR. PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON BRIDGE MANAGEMENT, UNIVERSITY OF SURREY, GUILDFORD, MARCH 28-30, 1990

This paper reviews current methods of managing the process of bridgeworks maintenance in the UK at a time when there is a national movement in the allocation of construction funds away from new works towards maintenance. Bridgeworks maintenance has been the subject of particular attention in recent years with the combined effects of increased deterioration in recent concrete structures and the recent increases in the permissible loadings for highway vehicles. These demands outstrip the available budget and hence many owners of bridgeworks stock have adopted formal bridge management systems and cooperated in research programmes.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 830553.
