Waihopai Rail Bridge
Kiwi Rail contracted Brazier Scaffolding Limited to provide a working platform along the rail bridge over the Waihopai River, Invercargill. Brazier Scaffolding developed the concept and passed it onto Layher’s Design Engineering Team to prepare drawings and verify the solution.

Layher got stuck in and returned the drawings back to Brazier Scaffolding in a short timeframe. Mike Russell, Brazier Scaffolding Supervisor said “They made it very clear and easy for Brazier’s and our client to understand the solution.”
“The whole Waihopai Rail Bridge project, which measured 45m by 4.5m, took 6 men just 16 hours to complete. We put this down to our experienced team and the user friendly and efficient Layher Allround and Layher Aluminium Beams.” said Mike.
Very happy client
Mike continued, “Our client, Kiwi Rail, was very happy that we could install the scaffold in the two day period while the railway line was not being used. They also commented how great the platform was to work from and how easy it was to access the rail sleepers.”
