About the Course

This course provides participants with a fundamental grounding in the key areas of bridge maintenance as it applies today. The course begins with an introduction to inspections before examining each type of maintenance required and components in detail. It is proposed to revisit some of the old traditional practices and see how they have changed over the years.

Many new engineers are missing out on some of the basics before launching into semi management roles. It is intended that this course will give an insight into some of these practices.

Emergency bridging – an area that has been overlooked in recent years. This will also be examined briefly, from incidents such as bush fires, floods and detours for heavy vehicles. Today we tend to re-invent the wheel for each emergency instead of learning from past experience.

Who Will Benefit

  • Structural engineers who are keen to learn the basic skills in bridge maintenance
  • Bridge maintenance project engineers and surveillance officers
  • Asset managers who may have limited experience in the fields of maintenance techniques, inspections and project hand over
  • Construction and maintenance foremen and leading hands who will benefit by understanding the surveillance that will follow
