PREMIER iNTEGRATED ROAD ASSET MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS

Bridge Management System


The bridge management system address the management of minor (culverts) and major (bridges) structures. Culverts and particularly bridges encapsulate a wide array of assets and consequently the amount of information one can derive from such structures is immense such as the structure inventory pertaining to the location, type, function, ownership, guardrails, dimensions, spans, balustrade. The system is designed in such a way that the level of detail captured for the inventory and assessment can be customized to cater for low detail or high detail scenarios.

The bridge management system intends to assess how poor the condition of a bridge is as opposed to how good it is. To this end the system makes use of a Bridge Condition Index that is calculated by applying coefficients to the degree, extent and urgency of every defect of the waterway, structure and approach. This prioritizes the bridges or structures that require urgent attention.

In addition to this, the system provides remedial actions and asset componentization reports.
