Bridge over the Clarence River
This road bridge over the Clarence River in the upper South Island of New Zealand is undergoing a seismic retrofit by Fulton Hogan which involves installing 200kg steel plates under the mid sections of each span.
Less than five hours
Lyndon Robinson of Marlborough Scaffolds was set a challenge. Having been told it was a 2 – 3 day tube-and-fitting job he knew he just had to do it in under one! In the event it took less than five hours from the arrival of the truck to sign off.
The scaffold was built on the riverbed on a screw jack and base collar platform and then winched into position. It was designed by our in house design team. The tying-in and overall project was signed off by a local engineer.
Thank you to Lyndon Robinson of Scaffold Marlborough for the use of this photo.
