Railway Bridge Maintenance, Second edition provides a thorough overview to assist those involved in the maintenance and management of existing railway bridges, dating from the early nineteenth century to the present, that are essential in supporting railway operations.
The second edition has been updated to reflect the current challenges bridge engineers face in assessing conditions and making informed decisions on cost-effective maintenance, repairs, upgrades and replacements. It also provides support to infrastructure engineers and planners who analyse, interpret and make decisions on large populations of bridge structures as part of the long-term planning and preparation of maintenance budgets.
