This technical manual details all the major aspects of inspecting and maintaining bridges. It categorizes ways bridges can deteriorate by material, including concrete, steel, timber, and masonry, and further divides each material into what factors can cause it to deteriorate. It then lists the procedures for inspection used by the Queensland Department of Main Roads (QDMR) and how QDMR logs and maintains its data about its bridges.
