Towards a uniform bridge management system for Australia and New Zealand

Austroads has sponsored a study of the information data needs to support effective agency management of bridge infrastructure assets. Overall objectives of the study were to develop national inventory and condition datasets, and an integrated approach to the determination of bridge condition indices that could be used for budgetary planning, prioritisation of maintenance activities, benchmarking and performance review. At workshops involving bridge asset personnel from 9 participating agencies the current status of bridge management systems as developed throughout Australasia was confirmed. Those systems were compared and formed the basis to establish common sets of bridge identification and structure inventories suitable for adoption in a uniform bridge management system. Inspection frequencies and bridge condition assessments of those systems were also compared and reviewed for adoption in the uniform system as being representative of current practice.
