Bridge & Mat Rentals


Johnston Construction maintains a line of rental bridges for use on temporary crossings. With an inventory of structures ranging from 2.5m (8ft) to 27m (90 ft), Johnston Construction can supply its clients with L25, L100 or CL625 structures or a custom built structure for all permanent or temporary access needs. These structures have a common deck width of 14ft and are designed, fabricated, maintained and certified to the most recent government and industry standards. The structures come in various configurations, from complete units ready for a quick install, to units with the decking removed for specific applications. The bridges have been designed to minimize transportation costs and for ease of installation and are available with supporting equipment such as concrete sills, treated timber ballast walls, etc.

The portable bridge rental service is based on the ability to react quickly to our clients needs. Whether an emergency replacement is required, or exploration roads require large quantities of structures over a short period of time, Johnston Construction has the solution.
