CIRIA takes bridge defects message on the road

The Construction Industry Research & Information Association (CIRIA) is planning a series of events to promote its new guide to detecting defects in bridges.

CIRIA’s latest publication is (C764) Hidden defects in bridges – guidance on detection and management.

A regional roadshow to promote the findings and recommendations kicks off on 1st June 2017 in Bristol’s Museum M-Shed, hosted by consulting engineer Ramboll. Professionals involved in bridge engineering, inspection and management are invited to attend.

Arup is hosting a similar event in the Midlands on 4th July. Further events are planned in London and Scotland in the autumn.

The events are being held to provide an overview of the good practice guide, and how it can be used to mitigate the risk of hidden defects which lead to bridge failure.

For more details, see www.ciria.org/hiddendefectsroadshow.  To register interest, email enquiries@ciria.org.

CIRIA project manager Lee Kelly, said; “As we saw last year, with the Forth Road Bridge, hidden defects can have a dramatic impact and lead to costly closure, maintenance and repair. CIRIA’s roadshow is an opportunity to bring together the bridge engineering community to discuss the latest good practice and emerging technologies that assist in bridge management and repair.”
