DATE
Wednesday 29th June 2022

 

The CBDG's 25th Annual conference tackled some of the sustainability options for the design, construction, inspection and management of concrete bridges in response to the question "how does concrete bridge engineering respond to the modern, post-carbon world?"

Presentations can be viewed by delegates who attended the conference for a limited period, and CBDG members.
