Bridges are an essential part of the transport infrastructure. There are more than 15,000 highway bridges in the UK, with approximately 300 new or replacement structures being built each year.
Steel comprises one of the principal structural elements in any new-build bridge with, on average, approximately 35,000 tonnes of structural steel being used annually for the construction of highway and railway bridges in Britain.
