Footbridges: a manual for construction at community and district level.

Abstract

This follow-up manual deals specifically with the construction of simple but effective footbridges for spans up to about 20 m and is targeted at local technical persons from district council staff, NGOs, local consultants, etc., who are involved in providing technical assistance to communities and small contractors in the construction of footbridges.

Although the bridges covered in the manual are termed 'footbridges', the designs also allow for use by livestock, IMT (Intermediate Means of Transport) such as oxcarts and the occasional light motorised vehicle, for instance a pick-up.
