Speed of construction

Typically a pontoon bridge is a temporary structure most often used when a method of crossing a body of water is required urgently - a modular pontoon bridge usually takes less than a day to install.


The other most frequent reason for choosing a pontoon bridge is the low cost of installation. This makes it ideal for both public and private events where spanning an open stretch of water, whether still or fast flowing, will dramatically increase accessibility and is suitable for very high volumes of pedestrian traffic.


Modern pontoon bridges are made from polyethylene modules that may be connected and configured into a variety shapes with different load bearing capabilities. Bridges may be specified for low volume pedestrian traffic right up to a bridge strong enough to drive a tank over.


With its modular design, transportation of the pontoon bridge is straightforward and construction fairly simple. You will be surprised how long the spans can be – we have frequently built bridges over 80m in length in just a few hours.


A variety of handrail systems are available. Please talk to us to ascertain which system best suits the design and location.


Pontoon bridges and walkways are regularly used on lakes, harbours, rivers and canals for public and private events or wherever a temporary bridge is required.
