Heavy concrete in bridge replacement is hydraulically moved by an operation known as sliding, which can be accomplished by using a PLC-controlled hydraulic system. The “bridge sliding” method reduces the duration of construction and traffic delays. Additional benefits include improving safety, decreasing post-construction repairs to routes being detoured, and reducing user costs. As bridge restoration and replacement becomes more relevant, this method of repair is becoming highly popular.
