Role of PTL
- PTL are New Zealand’s experts in the structural design and specification of stress-laminated timber bridges
These bridge structures are:
- Low cost
- Environmentally Friendly
- Easily Built

Stress-laminated timber bridges are used around the world providing sustainable, sturdy and cost effect solutions. Able to span up to 20 m and more, the use of timber makes the stress-laminated bridge light weight to maximise strength while minimising bridge depth.
Stress-laminated bridges are portable, prefabricated and easy to maintain. Stress-laminated bridges are also versatile with applications from architectural avant-garde pedestrian bridges to frequently and heavily loaded highway bridges. Stress laminating also has application in structural retrofit.
