BRIDGE AND TUNNEL MAINTENANCE METHODS

Bridges and tunnels are valuable assets. They were usually built long ago and their ageing inevitably involves a whole range of maintenance and renewal operations. These are costly and cause inconvenient and expensive interference to traffic. The maintenance of structures of this type requires engineering work on foundations in rivers, metal bridges, stone and brick bridges, and retaining walls. A decentralised organisation, very sound methods and extensive planning are required. This involves heavy expenditure but it is absolutely necessary because running safety and traffic regularity depend on such work.
