Title: Environmental sustainability in bridge management

Ref Code: IP14/04
Authors: K Steele

Abstract1: Most transport systems have a programme for highway administration, which will include a planned and co-ordinated approach to bridge management. Environmental performance is increasingly being seen as a principle against which bridge management should be measured, but a comprehensive understanding of the environmental impacts of bridge management activity does not yet exist. Environmental tools and information must be developed and integrated into current bridge management practice. Surrey County Council has recognised this need by creating an assessment method for the environmental comparison of bridge management strategies and forming a partnership with BRE's Centre for Sustainable Construction. This paper is an output from that collaboration.
