The new Singur Bridge is on a major route and is considered critical to promoting socio-economic development in the region.

The bridge is located 1,500m above sea level and the remote site is difficult to access, so an easily-transported and rapidly-installed modular bridge offered a solution. 

The bridge was supplied and installed by the 45 Engineers Division of the Pakistan Army, working in partnership with military engineering and construction firm Frontier Works Organization (FWO). 

The two-span Delta bridge is 100m long with a roadway width of 7.35m between kerbs and features a polyurethane-based anti-skid deck surface.

Michael Treacy, CEO of Mabey Bridge, said, “We are honoured to have been selected once again to partner on such an important project in Pakistan. Our reliable, cost-effective steel bridging solutions are well-suited to remote locations, and have been installed all over Pakistan to restore vital rural connectivity.

“We are delighted to have worked with both the 45 Engineers Division and FWO on this important project, building on a decades-long partnership in the development of critical rural infrastructure in Pakistan.”
