Current highway bridge designs in the UK tend to favour either composite steel girders with a precast or in situ concrete deck for long spans, or precast concrete beams with an in situ concrete deck for spans of less than 40m. Relatively few bridge decks are nowadays cast in situ on a birdcage scaffold or spanning falsework structure.

This article considers temporary works, in particular the use of temporary supports, to precast concrete bridge beams during deck construction.

The article is aimed at permanent works designers involved with the design elements of this form of construction, as well as civil and structural engineering undergraduate students.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 17: Falsework for the support of in situ concrete to horizontal surfac

Falsework is defined in BS 5975 as a temporary structure used to support a permanent structure while it is not self supporting. This article focuses on the use of proprietary equipment for the support of fresh concrete to horizontal surfaces. The principles and methods described are broadly applicable to all falsework.
