The Challenges of Mechanized Construction

Mechanized bridge construction enhances safety and quality, shortens project duration, saves costs and mitigate risk. The bridge industry is rapidly moving toward mechanized construction, and this trend is evident in many countries and involves most construction methods. Construction technology has acquired a key role in modern bridge engineering and influences bridge design and construction with specific requirements.
