Bridge strengthening or replacement works are often disruptive to the public through unpopular, lengthy diversions. Our range of temporary vehicle bridges are the ideal solution for planned, reactive and emergency works.
Our vehicle bridges span up to 80m and are suitable for use over motorways to minor rural lanes They help speed up the contractors’ works programme by removing traffic from the area completely.
The availability and speed of construction of our vehicle bridges enable us to provide rapid over-bridge or diversion routes, which is ideal for use in emergency situations. They have been used after a bridge strike, replaced storm damaged bridging or when a structural fault is identified on the road or rail network.
We have two core types of temporary vehicle bridges available for hire:
Ideal for situations needing rapid deployment, this bridge is delivered to site fully assembled and caters for spans up to 20m.
Supplied in ‘flat pack’ format for construction on site, our modular panel bridges have been developed for longer spans and load capacities.
