Re: Fw: pedestrian bridge-reply

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Pedestrian bridges are by code definition for people only.  Construction
walkways are for use during construction and subject to higher loading
conditions.

For light vehicles neither pedestrian bridge nor construction walkway is
applicable in the current UBC for loading criteria.  IMO national standards
for vehicle traffic loading should be used.

Hope this helps,
