Our services include the complete structural design and construction of your choice of bridge and we use only the highest quality British steel, which can be supplied hot dip galvanized if required.
We have included below some examples of steel bridge types and applications but full details can be found under our dedicated Steel Bridges site or alternatively contact us directly.
Designed to carry minor roads or feeder roads, particularly suitable in remote areas where these bridges can carry loadings suitable for more major roads.
For more information see road bridges on our Steel Bridges website.
These bridges can carry main road traffic and incorporate 2-lane carriageways, crash barriers and walkways.
The effective span of these bridges can range between 15m and 100m and more detailed information can be found under Highway Bridges on our Steel Bridges website.
As the name would suggest these bridges are designed for walking traffic, although they may be able to carry cyclists and light motor cycles.
The design of these bridges varies dependent on the span and height of the bridge and whether it will encompass stairs or ramps to accommodate disabled users. For a more detailed explanation read Pedestrian Bridges on our Steel Bridges website.
Railway bridges due to their complex nature are always individually designed and constructed based on the job they are required to do or the specific station needs.
Since railway “Possesions” are hard to obtain and only allow a short time for submission contact us for full details of the service we can provide and for further information see Railway Bridges on our Steel Bridges website.
These bridges are similar in nature to both our Road and Highway bridges however, they will cater more specifically for heavier loads, for further details see our dedicated Steel Bridges website.
Composite Beam Bridge
The bridge is constructed utilising steel beams with concrete decking above it. This is then connected by shear connectors to the concrete which enables the steel to work compositely. A composite beam bridge can be made as wide as required due to this formwork and can even include walkways.
If there are access issues with the intended gap such as no access to enable construction of temporary or permanent piers or no straight level run up to the gap permitting cantilever launch or the span is too large for regular through truss bridges, then a cable stayed bridge is the most suitable option.
They can span gaps from 50 to 200m and although lightweight are very strong and flexible. For a more detailed description please read our Standard Steel Stayed Bridges section or visit our bespoke Steel Stay Bridges information on our Steel Bridges website.
