Products used 57 x 5m pratt truss cycle / access bridge
 
 

CTS manufactured a 5m-wide x 57m-long streel pratt truss cycle / access bridge for the Gran Union Canal at Charter Street, Bedford.

This posed a problem at CTS as the factory door wasn't wide enough to get the 5m-wide bridge out so it had to be widened during manufacture to accommodate the bridge.

The bridge was delivered to site in 4 sections for site welding together prior to lifting into place.

Deck designed for a wheel load of 15kN and 3t vehicle load.

1.4m-high parapet with secondary stainless steel handrail.
