Modular Temporary Bridges

Scottish Canals are looking to invest in 3 lightweight fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) temporary modular pedestrian bridges.

Scottish Canals are investing in 3 lightweight fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) temporary modular pedestrian bridges, along with access ramps and handrails, enabling us to improve our capability and response to asset failures, and provide an alternative safe means of access for the public and our staff.

The bridges are currently being designed and manufactured by a specialist company in the Netherlands, and are due to be delivered by the end of March 2019. One of the first uses for one of these bridges will be as part of the Leamington Lift Bridge works, minimising the diversion route whilst we carry out the works to refurbish the lift bridge.

This page will be updated as works progress.
