Inconsistent maintenance on masonry bridges
« on: December 29, 2017, 09:49:27 AM »
I noticed that the maintenance on rail masonry bridges is, rightly, less than wooden bridges. However, for road bridges, the reverse is true, which I think is incorrect.

I believe the intention is that whilst masonry bridges are more expensive to build, the ongoing costs are much lower.

Brick rail bridges have a higher maintenance cost also, but I believe this is meant to reflect them having a higher speed limit  / the track component being better, rather than the structure.

I will have to look into this in more detail when I deal with the balancing of costs, hopefully in the new year after some balance critical features are implemented.
