Guide to Bridge Technology Part 1: Introduction and Bridge Performanceprovides guidance to bridge owners and authorities on technology related issues relevant to bridge ownership, design procurement, vehicle and pedestrian accessibility and bridge maintenance and management practices, including the use and application of Australian and New Zealand bridge design standards. It provides a step by step approach to bridge construction, discussing past learnings, the planning process, building materials commonly used, the various types of bridge designs, the issues to consider at the design stage and the management and ongoing maintenance issues of completed structures. The Guide to Bridge Technology compiles existing available material from Austroads members and elsewhere into a Guide which provides an Australasian approach to bridge technology that covers the majority of road authority requirements.
