A BRIDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR THE SOUTH AFRICAN NATIONAL ROADS AGENCY

A Bridge Management System which was originally developed and implemented by the Division of Roads and Transport Technology of the CSIR for the Taiwan Area National Freeway Bureau during 1995 has more recently been modified and implemented for a number of road and rail authorities in southern Africa. The BMS was initially implemented for the city of Cape Town Municipality and Spoornet (the South African rail authority) during 1996/97, the Botswana Roads Department during 1997/98 and is currently being implemented for the South African National Roads Agency and the Western Cape Provincial Administration. This paper describes various aspects of the implementation of the BMS for the National Roads Agency (NRA) as well as the relationship of the BMS with other systems in the Roads Agency's Integrated Transportation Information System (ITIS). A brief description of the BMS modules, their inter-relationship and the inspection rating procedure are also presented. For the covering abstract see ITRD E106406.
