Bridge Road update: Temporary services bridge to be lifted into position

It is proposed to lift the 50m temporary services bridge into position at about 1:00pm today.

If you intend watching please keep out of the construction area for safety reasons and clear of workmen.

Once the bridge is in place new services will be laid on it so that those on the existing bridge can be disconnected. They will stay on the bridge until the new road bridge is complete at which time services will be relocated back on to the road bridge and the temporary services bridge dismantled and returned to the owners in Auckland.

Three tenders have been received for the new road bridge and are currently being analysed. We will advise you as soon as a decision on the successful tenderer has been confirmed.
