I think "Normativa sobre instrucción" in this case equates to "Rules and Standards."

"Esta Instrucción se aplicará de forma complementaria con el resto de la normativa vigente..."

also

"Acción directa: fuerza aplicada sobre la estructura ..."

agree  xxxFVS: I think this is the best term here. It is certainly not instructions or procedures. http://www.mviv.es/NR/rdonlyres/24EDCFF6-107C-45CF-9482-E663...

Procedures


Explanation:
This needs to be translated as "Instrucción de Acciones" and not separately.

neutral  jack_speak: I believe acciones refers to forces acting upon the bridge - such as weight/wind, etc. // No problem, Edward. What is your interpretation, by the way, "Rules on Railroad Bridge Procedures?"
6 mins
  -> sorry, completely disagree with that interpretation.//No, my interpretation is at it stands, "procedures for", or "regulations regarding procedures for..."

agree  Rosa Paredes: Makes sense...
13 mins
  -> Many thanks Rosa! ;-)
