In situ options tend to be used on projects where the speed of construction is not critical, or where the lower costs of the in situ works justify a slightly longer programme.

Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 12: Management of concrete bridges

The final article in this series examines the long-term management of concrete bridges. The inspection and assessment of a bridge over its entire life, the maintenance requirements and possible strengthening to upgrade the bridge to a new load configuration or revised layout are discussed.

Concrete Bridge Design and Construction series. No. 3: Prestressing for concrete bridges

This article examines the prestressing for a concrete bridge. Prestressing enhances the capacity of a member that is weak in tension, but strong in compression. It effectively creates a new material that is strong in tension. A prestressed bridge has much less steel to be handled, which reduces congestion, leading to easier and quicker concrete placing.
