Bridge builders are those building bridges that have been approved by a bridge authority.

These bridges are designed to withstand the forces of the storm, which is usually much higher than what you would normally see on a bridge.

They are usually designed with steel spans, so they can withstand heavy winds, but they also need to be able to withstand being pulled under. 

What are the risks?

A bridge builder needs to be aware of the risks of building the bridge.

These risks include: a) Structural failure.

The structural failure is the loss of strength or strength that can cause the bridge to break down or break apart.

Structural failures are generally caused by poor design and maintenance of the bridge, or by failure of the design and construction of the span itself. 

b) Flooding.

Flooding occurs when water gets into the bridge and enters the structural systems of the structure.

Structures that are not designed to cope with flooding may fail, especially when water levels are low and the wind is blowing in. c) Stuck in traffic.

Structured traffic that is blocked by a large structure or a road is usually at risk of becoming stuck in the traffic.

The structure may need to break up to allow water to flow through. 

d) Severe weather.

The conditions of a storm can result in the destruction of a bridge or the loss or damage of other structures.

A bridge may become unstable because of a high storm tide.

A structure that is not designed or built to cope can also fail. 

e) Seismic damage.

Seismically damaged bridges are also more likely to fail, as seismic waves are able to travel long distances. 

The building and maintenance Bridge builders are usually required to wear helmets and gloves and to carry a weather vane when working on the bridge or when making repairs. 

Where are they located? 

The location of a new bridge or rehabilitation of a damaged structure depends on where it is.

For example, if a bridge is located in the sea, the structure is likely to be built closer to the water.

If the structure has a strong seawall, it is likely that the seawall is the problem. 

Which types of structures are required to have the required standards? 

Structures with steel- or aluminium-spans are normally built in one location and then repaired to allow the sea to drain away. 

Structural steel-span bridges and aluminium-span bridges are built in two locations and then reinforced with new steel and aluminium to keep them in place. 

Are there any additional costs involved in rebuilding a bridge? 

Bridge rebuilding is usually covered by insurance and will be covered by the builder. 

How long does it take to build a new structure? 

Most new bridges are finished in a year or less.

However, the cost of rebuilding a structure may be greater than the cost that it took to build it in the first place.

The costs for building new structures are generally higher than the costs for repairing existing structures. 

Does a bridge need to have a minimum height? 

If a bridge has a minimum structure height, then the bridge will need to provide a minimum distance between each side of the main span. 

Why do I need to replace my existing bridge?

The bridge that you are replacing needs to have all the required safety equipment and materials installed and to be fit for the conditions of the future storm.

This is why the builder needs the building permit. 

Can I use the existing structure for my bridge?

Yes.

You can use any existing structure that you can fit into the new structure. 

Will I need a licence for the new bridge?

If the new span has an existing structure and is not covered by a licence, then you can use it. 

If the bridge is covered by one of the existing structures, then it can be used. 

Who should I contact if I have any questions?

If you have any concerns about a new building, you can contact the bridge authority if you have concerns about the bridge builder.
