Long-span Trail Bridge Standard
For the people of many countries and particularly the remote and mountainous areas footpaths and mule trails are the lifelines not only for the exchange of goods, but also for the sick travelling to health care centres and children going to school, etc. Despite of great efforts in road construction, a large part of the hill population will depend on the traditional trail network with reliable river crossings. It is against this backdrop that Helvetas and SDC in collaboration with the Nepalese Government have developed and standardised a relatively simple technology. This is a combination of indigenous building systems with modern engineering practices. Bridges are being built in partnership with local governments and substantial community participation.
