What are modular bridges?

By manufacturing in a state-of-the-art British factory we ensure your bridge is of the quality needed to be installed on site more quickly, safely and efficiently. By making and designing modular bridges, with precision robotic welding techniques, we can produce bespoke designs that are easy to install and last a lifetime. Our bridge designs enable a wide range of configurations, delivering outstanding versatility. Think of how cars are built now – technologically advanced factories create high-volume, high-quality yet affordable vehicles. That is the approach we take at Mabey to bridge engineering and bridge construction.

“We chose Mabey and its Atlas bridge because of the reliability of its products and its experience installing bridges in challenging locations. This new bridge enables quicker, safer and improved access to our site ensuring we can accommodate the ever increasing sizes and requirements of our subsea pipeline solutions for the North Sea.”

Willie Watt, General Manager Subsea 7.

“Given Papua New Guinea’s mountainous landscape, supply and maintenance of roads in the country is a significant challenge, which is why Mabey’s C200 solution has been vital in improving road networks in this area. The new bridges will help more local people access markets to sell produce grown in their village, or harvest seafood from the rich marine environment, as well as enabling travel to larger centres where health and education services are based.”

Ron Lane, General Manager, Markham Culverts
