Bridge Construction Europe: The Construction Conference of 2010 to Feature International Bridge Projects and Case Studies

The construction of bridges, especially within an economy of uncertain state, demands clear-cut skills, knowledge and experience in bridge construction and delivery. Whether you have these tools can determine whether you win that tender, gain project approval and deliver the project on time and on budget in 2011 and beyond.

Bridge Construction Europe 2010 will equip you with these essential skills throughout the whole bridge project life-cycle. Whether it is in project preparation, planning, design, construction or maintenance of modern bridge systems that you specialise, this international bridge conference will advance your understanding, hone your knowledge and most importantly, keep you informed and in touch with your fellow peers, clients and customers.
