Bespoke bridge for new Travelodge, Bury St Edmunds

CTS were sent a concept of the style of bridge required and CTS's engineers worked closely with Marshalls to ensure the style of bridge matched the clients aspirations whilst meeting with current design standards.

The manufacture stage involved both CTS's skilled joiners and welders who worked together to merge the steel and timber elements required to produce this type of bridge.  The criss cross infills were set in a steel frame and were placed at intervals to ensure the safety of all users.  A durable FSC Ekki hardwood casing was fixed around the parapet frame to provide an aesthetic contrast and a to give a craftsman finish to the handrails.

The deck is manufactured from durable Ekki hardwood has Hi-Grip Excel non-slip inserts to provide a safe walkway for the hotel personnel and customers.

The bridge is made in the UK at CTS's factory in Huddersfield.  All steelwork is CE marked to Exc Class 4 and all timber is FSC accredited.
