Portable Bridges: Your Route to Job Site Success

portable bridges alberta

If you’ve read our previous piece on when to use access mats, you’ll already know that the Canadian landscape presents crews with a unique set of challenges when it comes to accessing remote or topographically adverse job sites. Access, rig, and crane mats can all help your equipment get where it needs to go, but when it comes crossing streams, gaps, and other types of openings, portable bridges are the ideal solution.

Portable bridges are a popular product for the mining, power, transmission, and oilfield industries as they provide a temporary measure for crossing streams with minimal environmental disruption. Additional benefits include:

  • minimized erosion
  • reusable
  • easy maintenance
  • easy to transport and install
  • less downtime and damage to equipment
  • cost friendly

Compass is pleased to offer portable bridges for rental or purchase. Our team of experts can easily help you find the right product for your job, with a selection ranging from 20’ to 140’ in span (custom builds are available upon request). All bridges feature steel girders with steel framed timber mods, and are available with fixed or removable deck structures. Our bridges also meet forestry specifications and come ready to bear heavy weight loads upon installation. Our services include both delivery and installation of all temporary bridges, site inspections, permitting, engineered drawings, pile driving, and any related earthwork to complete your project.
