LYDNEY-based Mabey Bridge has announced it has reached an agreement with the agency that manages Scotland’s forests to supply a number of crossings.

The deal with Forestry and Land Scotland will see permanent and temporary bridges erected for the agency’s projects across the country

Forestry and Land Scotland has a significant number of modular steel bridges, including Mabey Bridge components.

The agreement with FLS consists of the supply of Mabey Bridge’s most widely used product, Compact 200 bridging, in single spans ranging in length from nine metres (30 feet) to more than 42 metres (around 140 feet).

Mabey Bridge’s Compact 200 bridge system uses standard, interchangeable steel components to quickly erect permanent or temporary bridges. The components are recision-engineered at the company’s based on the Harbour Road industrial estate and can be easily disassembled and reassembled as needed, and are hot-dip galvanised for maximum protection from corrosion.

The company says its modular steel structures offer great versatility and are particularly well suited for the unique challenges of forestry applications.

A spokesperson said: "They are easily delivered to the most isolated areas, and easily and rapidly assembled by hand or with light plant with no requirement for field cutting or welding.

"When used for temporary applications, they are easily relocatable. in single spans ranging in length from 9 metres to more than 42 metres.

Michael Treacy, chief executive of Mabey Bridge, said: "Our Compact 200 modular bridges are ideal cost-effective solutions for the unique and considerable challenges of forest management and we are delighted to be able to provide such vital connectivity in support of the critical work of Forestry and Land Scotland."

Mabey Bridge, which is part of the Acrow Group, has supplied structures in more than 150 countries.
