If you need access up and around an obstacle, then you can join two or more towers together to form a tower with a bridge. The additional workspace attached on the ends or the sides create a U shape, allowing works on the subject in situ in the middle or to a facade where access is restricted by an obstacle between the towers. They are often used in aircraft maintenance and areas of high pedestrian footfall, where pathways and road space need to be kept clear. Towers with Bridges provide an extended, uninterrupted deck area while leaving room at ground level, making it a valuable and versatile platform with extra length than a standard tower can provide.
