Well built and maintained bridges are an essential part of Saudi Arabia’s transportation network; thus, identifying appropriate measures and tools to repair and maintain these bridges is a key issue for the efficiency and functioning of the Kingdom’s transportation network. This IRF certified training workshop will provide you with world-class guidance on bridge repair and maintenance techniques that can enhance the life span and the safety of bridges. This course is part two of the IRF’s Bridge Workshop Series in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first course focused on Bridge Inspections and Condition Assessments, while this course will have a more hands-on focus on repair and maintenance. Thank you for joining the global family of alumni who have benefited from the IRF’s unparalleled training programs.

Road bridges, whether they link neighborhoods in Abha or connect the Kingdom with neighboring countries, are an essential part of Saudi Arabia’s unprecedented effort to upgrade and transform our transportation network.
