IMPLEMENTATION OF A BRIDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR THE DISTRICT OF BURNABY, B.C. . PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1989 ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE ROADS AND TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION OF CANADA, CALGARY, ALBERTA, SEPTEMBER 17-21, 1989

The key features of a bridge management system is the development of a database which lists all characteristics relating to the structural and functional form of each bridge in the inventory. At intervals, a condition survey should take place, together with a load rating where required. In managing the bridge inventory, the engineer responsible draws information from the database which permits a schedule of maintenance activities to be developed, projected over a convenient planning period. This paper describes the development of the database and reporting procedures for a bridge management system for a network of twenty-five structures of various types. The paper describes the system used for selecting and prioritizing maintenance activities, and discusses the method adopted for projecting funding requirements. (TRRL )
