Abstract

Bridges are expensive and critical components of transportation systems that need to be managed effectively to ensure network reliability. In New Zealand (NZ), bridge asset management (BAM) is carried out by the state highway operator and local authorities but little systematic knowledge is available on BAM levels of development. This paper reports the results of a survey conducted in order to understand NZ BAM practices. Advanced asset management hinges on quality data about asset performance and condition and the focus of a study that followed the survey was the development of a strategic framework for bridge data collection. The proposed framework proposes close alignment of the extent and detail of the data collected with criticality and risk of bridges within their networks. Advanced data collection will increasingly rely on non-destructive testing and monitoring and their role in the proposed data collection strategy and integration into BAM are briefly discussed.
