SUSTAINABLE BRIDGES
Assessment for Future Traffic Demands and Longer Lives

 

Sustainable bridges is a project which assesses the readiness of railway bridges to meet the demands of the 2020 scenario and provides the means for up-grading them if they fall short. The 2020 scenario requires increased capacities with heavier loads to be carried and bigger forces to be absorbed due to longer faster trains and mixed traffic. All type of bridges are being considered. You can read more about the project by pressing About in the menue above.
