The manual is aimed at practitioners constructing footbridges at community and district level. A draft manual was initially prepared and reviewed by a range of international and local practitioners. The final manual, which contains substantial additions, is now available. Because of its size it has been split into two low-resolution PDF files. The contents are described in a 2-page brochure. Two supplements are also available, Supplement A is a case study of the installation of a steel truss footbridge in Sri Lanka and Supplement B is a workshop manual for the manufacture of a steel truss footbridge.
