This Good Practice Guide describes the lifecycle planning methodology developed by the London Bridges Engineering Group (LoBEG) Asset Management Working Group. The Group consider this methodology to be appropriate for bridges and other highway structures.
The purpose of this guide is to provide a step-by-step guide to lifecycle planning for highway structures, explaining terminology and techniques and how and when lifecycle planning can be used. This guide is intended to ensure a degree of consistency and comparability between lifecycle planning activities.
The proposed lifecycle planning methodology aligns with recognised good practice including the guidance provided in Basi PAS 55: Asset Management, the CSS Framework for Highway Asset management and Management of Highway Structures: A Code of Practice
