As part of a series of field and laboratory tests on SLTA bridges, a 20 m span arch bridge was designed and constructed at the Glentress Forestry Commission site Cited by: 5. Jan 01,  · If properly designed and constructed, timber bridges can carry the same loads as bridges built of any other material and will provide many years of acceptable performance. At this time, timber bridges are feasible for short- and medium-span structures, and research is being conducted to develop wood systems for longer span structures.
