In the Iberian Peninsula there are many masonry bridges enduring overtime that require inspection and maintenance. In 2007 it was carriedout a restoration project on the bridge of Sant Andreu de Terri (Girona,Spain). Prior to this intervention, the bridge did not meet the safety andcomfort requirements for the crossing of people and the walls showedloss of masonry stones and material from joints. The surface was cleanedand replaced the existing metal rail. The board was replaced; waterproofand longitudinal drainage pipes were installed to prevent waterinfiltration. As result of this action a historical, artistic and architecturalheritage construction was recovered re-offering the use for which it wasconceived.
