Abstract

This paper summarises five case studies of major repairs to historic wooden bridges in New Zealand. Three different approaches to repair are included, each approach involving progressively less intervention to existing fabric: replacement, repairs, and stabilisation. The paper concludes with a comparative evaluation, sources of more detailed information, and an agenda for further action.
