Indian Bridge Management System

It is aimed at ensuring safety of bridges in India.

What is IBMS?
  • IBMS is being developed to create an inventory of all bridges in country and rate structural condition of the bridges.
  • The rating will help for their timely repair and carrying rehabilitation work based on the criticality of the structure.
  • IBMS is the largest platform in the world owned by a single owner, with database that could exceed one lakh fifty thousand bridge structures.
Why was it necessary?
Lack of any data base on bridges in the country has led to a situation where there is no clear idea about the exact number and location of bridges. Hence, it has become difficult to maintain bridges in proper working condition. Poor condition of bridges hampers efficient transport and has also led to accidents and loss of lives on several occasions.
