Steep, no problem.

Our challenge
To construct 3 bridges in an isolated and challenging location. The terrain was steep and rocky, requiring gear and materials to be airlifted in.

Our solution
We constructed two suspension bridges plus a small pole bridge. Despite the challenges, these were finished on time, to a high standard.

Products Used

Pine timber planks and poles


Galvanised steel hardware


Galvanised wire rope
