Rapid Response Bridge

Flood damaged bridge? Get reconnected fast.

Washed out bridges can play havoc with people’s lives and create costly problems far beyond the expense of a replacement bridge.

Our Rapid Response Bridges, designed in partnership with DC Structures Studio are specifically created to restore long-term access after a severe weather event. They are lightweight and cost-effective but offer a permanent solution for homeowners, farmers, and councils who are struggling to get back on their feet and clean-up flood-damaged property.

They are designed to meet NZTA Bridge Manual standards and are incredibly quick to construct and install, allowing you to restore access in a matter of weeks.

Rapid Response Bridges are made from durable galvanised steel and sustainable timber, offering an environmentally-friendly solution that is suitable for a wide range of scenarios. Balustrades are 1.2m tall and feature three rails but can be in-filled with an anti-climb mesh if required.
