Historic bridges of Australia

vol. CE26, no. 4, 1984, pp. 264-270

Research on historic bridges, carried out under the terms of a research grant provided by the Australian Heritage Commission to The Institution of Engineers, Australia, has led to the publication of a booklet, and a Register which lists 945 bridges. Graphs of span against data have been used to identify Australia's most notable bridges, and these are listed in the paper. The frequency of occurrence of material and structural form is discussed, as also are strategies for bridge conservation.
