Key Eurocodes guidance on the geotechnical aspects of bridge design was issued for comment by the British Standards Institution (BSI) last week.
The Published Document, PD 6694-1: Recommendations for the design of structures subjected to traffic loading to BE EN 1997-1 includes recommendations on the design of retaining structures,
foundations, integral bridges and buried structures. It also provides guidance on matters currently included in Highways Agency standards.
The public consultation process was launched at a meeting at the ICE last week. Comments can be made until 30 November through the BSI website.
The final online Eurocode consultation workshop run by the Steel Construction Institute is on 30 October.
