A rapid build modular bridge system for medium spans and heavy loadings
Available for hire or sale, the Retro Light Bridge (RLB) is a modular steel bridge system pre-designed for delivery to site on conventional transport and rapid erection with little or no on site pre-assembly. Many RLB’s can be erected and ready for traffic within hours of arrival on site.
Delivered by road, quickly installed and ready for traffic
RLB units are pinned and bolted together to form bridges of any length with clear spans of 10.5m, 21m, 24m, 27m and 31.5m and with any number of traffic lanes. Standard 3m wide bridge units combine with 1.5m infill units to provide many roadway width options: 3m, 6m, 7.5m, 9m, 10.5m, 12m, etc. Other bespoke bridge widths can also be accommodated.
Retro Light Bridges are suitable for emergency, temporary or permanent bridges on all types of road from heavily trafficked motorways and urban dual carriageways to construction site accesses and lightly trafficked rural roads.
The RLB system is designed in full compliance with the Eurocodes to carry loading defined in many different international standards including Eurocode I - III, LM1 or LM2; HA and various levels of HB loading to BD37/01; and HS20, HS25 or HL93 loading to AASHTO. Abnormal loads and off-road construction traffic can also be accommodated.
Lightweight, safe and flexible solution
The RLB slim line 1.16m deep lightweight all-steel structure ensures foundation, approach ramp and other substructure costs are kept to a minimum.
Factory applied epoxy based anti-skid deck surfacing is a standard feature of the RLB. Longitudinal joints can be made watertight if required to provide a suitable solution for use on more environmentally sensitive sites. And services can easily be accommodated below deck level.
