Truss Bridge System

The lightweight bridge solution with pre-engineered clear spans typically between 15 and 45 metres


High Durability. Low Impact.

Longreach™ is an economical truss bridge system with typical clear spans of between 15 and 45 metres. The lightweight and customisable design delivers maximum durability thanks to a high strength all-weather superstructure. Suitable for single or multi-span projects, the long pre-engineered spans are ideal for sites where minimising environmental impact is a key consideration.

  • High strength truss system
  • Clear spans up to 45 meters
  • Durable, lightweight and economical
  • Pre-engineered for fast installation
  • Minimal excavation required
  • Low maintenance

Span every challenge

Longreach™ is an outstanding option when budgets are tight. Perfected over more than 30 years of bridge building, the system is purpose-engineered to maximise efficiencies at every stage from design and detailing to manufacturing and installation, with the entire superstructure fabricated and pre-assembled offsite.

While light in weight, Longreach™ is engineered to be high in strength, with a robust superstructure consisting of girder trusses, cross members, joists and bracing. Its clever construction makes it a hugely versatile solution that’s suitable for a wide range of pedestrian and shared bridge applications (including light vehicles), as well as covered walkways over trafficable routes.

With typical clear spans of between 15 and 45 metres, Longreach™ reduces the number of footings required on bridge projects, as well as their associated environmental impacts during and after construction. Together with a choice of piling options, pre-assembly off-site and low ongoing maintenance, it makes an excellent choice for ecologically sensitive and hard-to-access sites.

Design adaptability is another area where Longreach™ excels. The base system has a distinct ‘industrial’ look. However, the structure can be easily embellished to suit any architectural intent – particularly through the incorporation of custom truss styles to suit your desired vision. Additional embellishments can also be specified including handrails, kick rails, balustrades and decking.
