Abstract. In this article authors highlight questions of durability management of reinforced concrete bridge constructions located on industrial transport railways and highways in difficult exploitation conditions. The main problems of maintenance are formulated, the prevailing defects and damages are designated, and similarity with maintenance problems in megalopolises is noted. The conclusion on necessity of special approaches to management of technical condition of such objects is made; recommendations on implementation of automated structural health monitoring systems are given.

Abstract. Method of calculation of reliability of rails are presented in article. Research of refusals and durability of rails on two directions of the West Siberian management of infrastructure for sites of a way with different operational characteristics is conducted. Dependence of a gamma percent resource of rails on axial loading of cars and the plan of a way is received. Conclusions about a possibility of reaching of the passed tonnage of rails in 1500 million tons gross are given.
