LYDNEY, United Kingdom, Dec. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mabey Bridge, an Acrow Group company specialising in modular steel bridging, is pleased to note it has reached a framework agreement with Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS) for the supply of multiple structures to the agency. The bridges will be provided on demand and used throughout the country for permanent and temporary applications on FLS-managed projects.

FLS maintains a significant inventory of modular steel bridges, including Mabey Bridge components. Mabey Bridge’s modular steel structures offer great versatility and are particularly well suited for the unique challenges of forestry applications. They are easily delivered to the most isolated areas, and easily and rapidly assembled by hand or with light plant with no requirement for field cutting or welding. When used for temporary applications, they are easily relocatable. The agreement with FLS consists of the supply of Mabey Bridge’s most widely used product, Compact 200™ bridging, in single spans ranging in length from 9 metres to more than 42 metres.

Mabey Bridge’s Compact 200 bridge system uses standard, interchangeable steel components to provide robust, rapidly deployed and erected solutions for permanent or temporary bridges. Precision-engineered, they can be easily disassembled and reassembled as needed, and are hot-dip galvanised for maximum protection from corrosion.

Michael Treacy, CEO, Mabey Bridge, said:

“Our Compact 200 modular bridges are ideal cost-effective solutions for the unique and considerable challenges of forest management and we are delighted to be able to provide such vital connectivity in support of the critical work of Forestry and Land Scotland.”
