Quality control is one of the important aspects of any major construction works, which is to be undertaken to ensure work execution according to design requirements. The work presented in this paper involved measurement of cover thickness in three newly constructed highway bridges. Testing was conducted to ensure that specified requirements were attained prior to commissioning of the structures; otherwise, the quality control survey would identify problem areas for consideration of corrective measures. A total of 328 data sets were obtained during cover measurements. In this paper, the results obtained are discussed and evaluated. Data are characterised on the basis of statistical quantities.
