Abstract: This report presents the national experience in the implementation of the Eurocodes for the design of bridges along with a structured work plan for their evolution. Based on feedback collected from National Contacts, it appears that despite difficulties encountered in the process of national calibration, the implementation of the Eurocodes for bridge design is advanced and that there is high potential for further harmonization. The report also presents a five-year project to support the evolution of the Eurocodes for the design of bridges that was prepared by CEN/TC250 Horizontal Group “Bridges”. Based on experience and on the feedback collected from National Contacts, a priority list of items to consider for future development has been compiled, whereas specific topics and research needs to underpin the proposed work have been identified. The project will integrate research results and guidelines that are already available and will harmonise national initiatives.
