PIARC Prize - Road Design, Construction, Maintenance and Operation - Bridge Monitoring and Data-Driven Structural Asset Management

Balancing transport productivity and risk of bridge damage requires sound engineering judgments. The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is closing the loop between the assumptions and rules underpinning heavy vehicle access to bridges, observed bridge responses and heavy vehicle behaviour through the application of bridge and traffic monitoring, weigh-in-motion, video, and data analytics, and engineering fundamentals.
