Are you facing the challenge of transporting resources to and from your remote worksite? Due to rough, unreliable terrain, rapidly changing weather patterns and other such factors, the Canadian landscape can make staying on top of your project difficult without the right resources. Temporary access bridges serve as a way to navigate less than ideal locations with ease, while also maintaining the integrity of the area and upholding environmental standards. Learn more about the benefits and applications of temporary access bridges, as well as Sterling Solutions TerraCross™ products, below.
When To Consider Temporary Access Bridges
For those in the oil & gas, petrochemical, construction, forestry, and mining industries, it’s no secret that remote job sites can pose logistical problems where access is concerned. While access mats can help to circumvent uneven or unreliable surfaces, access bridges are vital when it comes to facilitating detours in a safe and efficient manner. Bridges become particularly beneficial in areas where creeks, rivers and major gaps in topography are found. Depending on the worksite, temporary or permanent models may be ideal, with the following factors helping to inform what solution works best:
- Duration of use
- Ground type
- Weight capacity needs
- Area specific environmental factors
Portable or temporary bridges are fantastic for a wide range of applications, especially for projects that may only require access to a specific area for a shorter duration of time, as well for those who wish to save money by reusing the same bridge in multiple areas. Benefits of installing a temporary access bridge include:
- Increased safety when transporting resources to and from site
- Higher productivity, resulting in fewer delays
- Reduced transportation costs, and more.
