Access and lifting
We have designed a number of different bridge access gantries for both permanent and temporary use. These are typically used to provide safe man access to difficult to reach locations. This has included the design of specialist ‘cable crawler’ gantries used for the inspection of cables on suspension bridges. This style of gantry has reduced the time required to carry out the work, typically halving it. We were also involved in the design of the temporary gantries used for the construction of the Queensferry Crossing in Scotland.
We have produced a short guide to bridge access platforms and gantries that can be found here.
