SAMCO Final Report 2006 F09 Report on Bridge Management
4.7 Spain (Geocisa)
The Bridge-management in Spain is carried out by two different approaches: The first is used on the Madrid Regional Road Network and the second is used on the State Road Network.
Madrid Regional Road Network
The practice in Madrid Regional Road Network includes the types of inspections listed in Table 13 and the condition ratings described in Table 14.
The BMS used by this regional administration is GEOCISA BMS. Data stored in the system includes:
Proposed repair: technical data and budget needs.
Actually executed repair: technical data and amounts really invested.
Others (Inspection reports, project documents, etc.)
Visual Inspection. Non technically specialised staff required (performed by road maintenance personnel). General main- tenance (cleaning, simple repair…). Higher level inspection should be performed if unusual cases of damage are de- tected.
Visual Inspection. Instructed Technical staff required. Data collection of all detected damages leading to condition rat- ing. No special means of access used. Frequency varies depending on the significance of the road (3 levels exist). Higher level inspection should be performed if unusual cases of damage are detected.
Extensive visual Inspection. Instructed Technical staff re- quired. Data collection of all detected damages leading to condition rating. Special access used if required (crane, automobile platforms etc.). Frequency varies depending on the significance of the road (3 levels exist). Higher level in- spection should be performed if unusual cases of damage are detected.
Extensive visual Inspection. NDT, sampling, numerical analysis, performed as required. Experienced Technical staff required. Detailed assessment of the bridge performed.
