STANDARD JKR SPECIFICATION FOR BRIDGE LOADING. PROCEEDINGS, SIXTH CONFERENCE, ROAD ENGINEERING ASSOCIATION OF ASIA AND AUSTRALASIA, 4-10 MARCH 1990, KUALA LUMPUR, VOLUMES 1 TO 5 AND POST CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

As the owner of about 80% of the nation's bridges, the Public Works Department Malaysia (JKR Malaysia) is often looked upon as a bridge authority with regard to standard practices in bridge design in Malaysia. There is a need for JKR to formulate and implement a national standard specification for bridge loading. In fulfilling such need, the Bridge Unit of the JKR Roads Branch had set up a "Bridge Loading Committee" to study and review various bridge design codes as well as the recommendations proposed by the National Axle Load Study Report (1987). It was hoped that the standardisation would achieve the best compromise fulfilling Malaysia's needs in terms of economy, utility and safety in the overall management of the road systems. This paper reports the various considerations deliberated by the Committee in the formulation of the standard specification. It also discusses the proposed specification.
