It's just the oldest trick in the book, pakistani english school student trying out to be a telemarketer.

Actually they make these posts and then go back and add spam to them in a day or two.

That's quite the word salad.
If only they had synergistically leveraged their core competencies across the entire value chain, they could have landed high on the S-curve, and in the spirit of collaboration and transparency, avoided silos, blah blah blah…

Keep an eye on local Ritchie Bros auctions. They have bridges pop up and they seem to be selling for $2-4K.

Some examples-

This is one I built with my Snowmobile Club. It's got 5- 14" power poles across the span about 35 ft. The decking is 2X12X14 Larch with we get from a local mill guy.
The runners stop wear from the Groomer drags tearing up the decking. The Groomers weight in 18,000LBS to 22,000 LBS without any flexing.
I did build on a 140 year old Railroad Tressel that had steel spanning the creek 40 ft long. We added a couple on power poles on it also. We bolted 2x8 on the steel with carriage bolts to be used as the nailer for the decking.
We do screw them with big lags/ construction screws

I was just about to say, if he were in a snowmobile club he would have no problem knowing how to do a bridge. We drive a lot of heavy groomers, etc across our bridges.
