TerraCross™Access Bridges: Your Dependable Solution For Easier Crossing

Does your remote worksite feature uneven terrain that makes crossing and regular transport methods difficult? Canada’s landscape can pose multiple challenges to your project. From uneven terrain to creeks, ditches, and other similar factors, delivering valuable resources to and from the job site can be a headache without the right tools in place. Temporary access bridges like those found in Sterling Solutions’ range of TerraCross™products help haulers and project managers circumvent these difficulties with ease, while also minimizing your overall impact on the surrounding environment. Learn more about the benefits of access bridges, as well as TerraCross™solutions, below.

Bridge Over Troubled Waters: When Access Bridges Make A Difference

It’s no secret that remote worksites can often pose a surplus of logistical problems when it comes to staying on top of your project, especially when you factor in Western Canada’s ever-changing weather patterns and fluctuating temperatures. From muddy paths to creek beds and more, finding a dependable way to facilitate easy transport is vital. Where access mats are best suited to creating makeshift pathways, access bridges are useful when it comes to any application where there is a need to cross a gap in the ground, such as rivers or ditches, with both temporary and permanent options available to meet your needs. Factors that help determine what kind of bridge is best for your specific application include:

  • Intended period of use
  • Load capacity requirements
  • Geographic factors specific to your location

In many cases, portable or temporary bridges are a suitable solution that allows you to facilitate easy crossing with minimal disturbance to the area in the longterm. This is particularly ideal for projects that may only require brief access to a specific portion of the worksite to deposit resources, as well as where cost-effectiveness is a concern since portable bridges can be used in multiple areas. The end result of using temporary access bridges is increased safety, reduced costs where transportation is concerned, and less disruption to your overall workflow.
