This paper presents a relatively simple, practical method for the analysis of environmental impacts of bridge material selection. Choosing construction materials for a bridge – e.g. steel, concrete, timber, aluminium, composite – is not only an economical, functional or esthetical issue. It also affects the environment. The following discussion concerns the way to quantify environmental impacts in comparable terms – and to assess possible material choices respectively.
