Why Use Temporary Portable Bridges

Struggling with the fluctuation of the weather during a project is frustrating for everyone. Crossing water, ditches or any uneven terrain can cause several hazardous risks for workers and machinery. Project managers in the oil and gas, power, chemical and mining industries install temporary portable bridges to provide safe and secure paths across all troublesome land. Access movable bridges are designed to offer your workers and equipment a safe worksite while saving you time and money.

TerraCross Bridge Benefits

The TerraCross temporary bridge is engineered to maintain workflow efficiency and ensure that your worksite is safe for workers, machines and the environment. With fluids being transported from one location to the other, cross-contamination and accidental spillage could heavily impact the land. TerraCross bridges are designed using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) mats and a geotextile surface to avoid contamination of the grounds or spillage to waterways. They are also bonded together using an eco-friendly adhesive that allows the mats to be more flexible and distribute the weight evenly throughout, rather than concentrate the weight only on the bolted areas.

Using glue to adhere the planks together instead of bolts ensures that the bridge’s surface is solid and smooth, eliminating the risk of tripping or tire punctures. TerraCross bridges are not only safe for your worksite, but they are also significantly robust and can handle weight up to 100 tons. Specs include:


  • Weight: 100 tons
  • Maximum Spanning Distance: 35′
