This practical handbook is a comprehensive guide to the conservation of older bridges, commissioned by the UK Highways Agency. It provides essential guidance and recommendations for bridge conservation, repair and maintenance strategies, and proposes a new approach to best practice for bridge conservation.
Conservation of Bridges covers all types of highway, foot, railway, river and canal bridges built before 1960. It comprehensively deals with state-of-the-art methods of conservation, as well as structural form and behaviour, architecture, archaeology, legislation, and attitudes to conservation.
With case studies from all over the world and full colour illustrative photographs throughout, the book demonstrates what has, and can continue to be achieved in the pursuit of excellence in this field. Conservation of Bridges is essential reading for all engineers, architects and other professional groups responsible for the ongoing maintenance of a diverse bridge heritage.
