Future of Bridges | Maintenance in the spotlightSubscription
Collapse of the Polcevera Viaduct in Genoa has thrown bridge maintenance into the spotlight, after near misses like at Hammersmith in the UK, with engineers calling for more rigorous, predictive regimes.
Structural health monitoring gives assurance that the 54 year-old Forth Road Bridge is in fine form, while machine-learning will soon be predicting where any weaknesses are developing.
Operators of the Polcevera Viaduct which collapsed in Genoa in August claim the damaged structure can be rebuilt in eight months. We assess the options.
