For rationalizing construction procedures of short span bridges, a slab bridge composed of steel square tubes was proposed. Clarifying load transfer performance and load carrying capacity of the slab structure, loading test using a real scale structure was conducted. As the result of the test, it was confirmed that the proposed slab structure has sufficient load distribution performance and load carrying capacity.
