Rail

Rail bridges are at constant attack under stress as water, chlorides, acid rain, de-icing salts and freeze-thaw cycles act on them. Extreme weather cycles, the impact of traffic and vibration place bridges under further stress. As steel reinforcing bars corrode and expand, concrete can crack and deteriorate. The costly disruption caused by resulting repair work impacts on both traffic and safety.

Bridge repairs can often amount to 10-30% of the updated construction cost, and large repairs may even exceed the updated construction cost and still be the preferred option when compared to the cost of traffic interruption and demolition. As moisture is the most significant factor in concrete deterioration, incorporating sufficient waterproofing at the design stage is by far the most cost-effective option.
