GoI will be mapping 1.5 lakh bridges through an integrated system called IBMS. This stands for Integrated Bridge Management System. When completely operational, it will be the largest such system across the globe. Around 46,645 bridges have been digitally mapped by Germany. IBMS has mapped close to 50,000 bridges and culverts numbering 1.5 lakh in the nation. System that is an initiative under the Make in India drive will have smallest details of culverts and bridges and address safety as well as security concerns. IDEC Engineers have been appointed as project consultant for this and the system will contain data such as national identity number, latitude and longitude classifications and SES.
