Design guide for steel railway bridges (SCI P318)

The guide sets out a review of the particular requirements for carrying railway traffic and interfacing with railway infrastructure and, since construction issues are particularly acute for replacement bridges, describes the constraints and options for bridge construction. Typical forms of construction for short to medium span bridges are described and simplified cross sectional arrangements are illustrated.  A key consideration for the selection of railway bridges is a safe and reliable structure that can be constructed and maintained with minimal disruption to railway passengers and traffic - steel railway bridges meet these requirements particularly well.
