High Bridge

This impressive historic railway bridge in the South Island was in desperate need of maintenance. Brazier Scaffolding were contracted to provide a suspended access scaffold for blast and paint works. The scaffold also needed to be encapsulated in order to contain the lead paint from the surrounding environment.

Long suspended scaffolding

Brazier Scaffolding erected this 50m long suspended scaffold using Layher’s Allround modular Scaffolding system. This was one of three sections which Brazier simultaneously erected on the same bridge.

Logistical challenge

Glen Brazier commented, “over 150 tonne of Layher Allround was required for this project. The real challenge for us was logistical. The point of the build wasn’t very accessible which required some thinking outside of the square. The team did a great job and the project ran according to plan.“
