Our first project of this kind in the UK has been sucessfully completed after extensive work by the Lifespan team with the Client, Forestry England the largest landowner in England.

The Lifespan bridges provide a far more sustainable, cost effective and durable bridge deck solution than has been historically achieved using traditional building materials whilst also reducing the carbon footprint and energy embodiment in the bridge structures.

The 2 new Lifespan resin infused FRP bridges were designed to BS EN 1991-2 [Ref 4.N] load model LM1 & LM2 which is also fully compliant with the latest DMRB standards and capable of withstanding trafficking by fully laden 44T logging HGV lorries. 

Manufacturing of the bridges was undertaken in our specialist composite production facilities prior to being delivered to the remote location in the forest and then being installed onto their newly constructed abutments. In accordance with the health and safety reuirements of Forestry England new compliant timber parapets were also installed by mechanically fixing them to the FRP bridges.
