Modular bridges have a key role in uniting remote communities and opening new routes for trade and commerce and are also vital to bring urgent help where catastrophes have destroyed existing links. They have a significant impact in speeding up the flow of food and medical supplies to stricken areas.
Throughout the developing world, our experience extends from design, manufacturing and installation, to support with arranging finance and conducting environmental assessments.
Our modular bridge operation is designed for speed of turnaround, even in the most remote locations. Precision planning and highly organised logistics mean that we can work to the tightest timescales, from initial order to installation and fully operational bridge.
Our skilled and experienced project managers also ensure that environmental implications are fully considered from the outset.
All our bridges are fabricated to the highest quality in galvanised steel for a long life with minimum maintenance and a range of decking surfaces is available to suit a variety of end uses. Sections of modular bridge can be swiftly transported through challenging terrain and can be easily and rapidly erected into place without the need for heavy or complex lifting equipment.
On site, we forge partnerships with the community to involve local people in many different aspects of our work. From the provision of bridge decking materials to the construction of abutments and other structural aspects, we aim to engage local workers and businesses in the completion of every project. This collaborative approach helps to create much-needed training, education and employment opportunities and to develop new transferable skills, which leave a lasting positive impact.
Our modular bridges come in different spans and are available in single or double lane with walkways.
We provide a range of temporary bridges for use in disaster relief and other emergencies. These are ideally suited for rapid installation where urgent links are required, reuniting physically divided communities using our tried and trusted design.
Customised to suit specific needs or where a modular bridge is not the right approach, an individual design can offer the best solution, whatever the requirement or location. Where volumes are significant, there can be opportunities for economies of scale.
Our modular bridges are more than structures, for many communities they create a link to the outside world, opening up vital routes for the provision of food, medical supplies and trade.
