Management of Bridges in Australasian and African Countries

This report presents the results of the questionnaire disseminated by PIARC Committee C11 in 2000, respectively to Australasian countries and to African countries, in view of the seminars scheduled. The aim was to gather information in order to have a better knowledge of the bridge management in these countries, the difficulties encountered and the needs. The questions were about: the stock (bridges, retaining walls), the condition of the stock, the definition of work priorities,
organization (who is doing what?), training, management policy, problems encountered. The report is completed by appendices with reports from Madagascar, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam which describe the situation in bridge management in each of these countries.
