A temporary staging bridge has been installed to replace the mid-section of the bridge that was washed away. The bridge ensures a safe passage for vehicles and pedestrians to cross the Tutaekuri River. The damaged mid-section of the Redclyffe Bridge, debris, silt, and obstacles were cleared from the riverbed to allow for the installation of staging. The temporary staging bridge is a 9-span steel beam and prestressed concrete deck structure. This bridge has been designed for a speed of 30km/h only.
Engineering and contractor teams are currently monitoring the existing structure either side of the staging bridge. This has resulted in a weight reduction of the overall bridge to be a maximum of 8 tonnes.
Details of community meetings will be added here, as and when confirmed.
