Bridge management strategies need to specify maintenance actions, which are required in order to keep a desired performance level. This paper presents the structure and basic ideas for the development of a guideline incorporating different aspects of bridge performance goals, which may vary according to technical, environmental, economic and social factors. Furthermore it discusses the need for agencies to measure bridge performance against objectives on structure and network level. The paper is based on activities in the COST Action TU 1406, which aims to bring together both research and practicing community in order to accelerate the establishment of a European guideline for bridge management.
