2025 - Solutions to bridge engineering challenges

2025 - Solutions to bridge engineering challenges


At a time when the impact of climate change on transport networks is increasingly in evidence with greater bridge damage and more frequent collapses, many bridge engineers and owners are looking to increase the resilience of their structures as well as find new ways of reducing the carbon footprint of their activities.

The 2024 edition of Bridges Conference showcased some compelling approaches that are being developed to address these challenges - some learned through devastating experience - as well as cover essential subjects such as the next generation of Eurocodes, the new Bridge Inspection Manual, artificial intelligence and SHM, bridge surveying with 3D modelling as well as innovative analysis methods for masonry arches.

The next Bridges event will take place 12-13 March 2025 alongside the Bridges Awards. Nominations for the 2025 Awards will open in September 2024.
