Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Brückenbau
English term or phrase: bridge-crawl
"The chief engineer of the project was John Bradfield, and the Bradfield Highway that crosses the bridge still bears his name. After touring the world on a bridge-crawl, he decided to base his design on New York's Hell Gate Bridge."

Der Text stammt aus australischer Feder, könnte also ein australischer Begriff sein. Ich denke an eine Art Brückenbesichtigungstour, könnte das stimmen?

Brückenrundgang
Explanation:
When you go 'pub crawling' it signifies a visit to various pubs to, ahem, inspect their wares. I would envision that this is where the bridge builder visits bridges throughout the world to see how they were built.

Thanks for the explanation! I chose a slightly different translation, though, because "Rundgang" doesn't match "touring the world" very well.
