Mabey Universal™ Bridge and Rail Bridge

The Mabey Universal™ is a robust modular bridging system designed to cope with the heavy-duty vehicles used in construction, mining, oil and gas and extractive industries, and is available for both permanent and temporary applications.

The Mabey Universal™ system uses standardised, interchangeable steel components to provide robust, rapid-build solutions for permanent rural bridges, temporary access and emergency bridging. Achievable span lengths, in span increments of 2.25m, vary according to loading but multiple span structures supported on intermediate piers mean that the suitability of the Mabey Universal™ is not restricted by length of crossing.

Its unique combination of pre-engineered modular components, simple pinned / bolted connections, heavy load capability and robust design makes the system ideal for use as a stock bridge system in country. Transport authorities worldwide use the Mabey Universal™ as a rapid deployment bridge system, not only for disaster relief but also on public road diversions during bridge reconstruction or for heavy plant site access and temporary haul road applications.
