Bridges and other structures are crucial asset elements of the infrastructure network. It is essential that their condition is monitored and repairs are planned and completed in an efficient and timely manner. The systematic inspection, condition rating and monitoring of these assets are vital components to managing the lifecycle of these structures.
This 3-day workshop will assist participants to develop the knowledge and skills to conduct Level 1 and 2 Inspections in accordance with industry best practice.
A Level 1 routine maintenance inspection is required to check the general serviceability of the structure, particularly for the safety of road users, and identify any emerging problems. A Level 2 condition rating inspection is a key step in assessing the effectiveness of past maintenance treatments and identifying current maintenance needs to assist in the forecasting future changes in condition and estimating future budget requirements of structures across the network.
Note: It will be beneficial for attendees to have a basic knowledge of bridges and culverts.
