Cyclone Gabrielle caused significant damage to the bridge located on Number 4 Road in Te Puke.
The damage was extensive, and about 30 properties located upstream from the bridge were affected.
McLeod is proud to be part of the team working on the project, and our crane and team have been on-site, working diligently to install the new bridge.
The Western Bay of Plenty District Council has estimated that a nearly 40-metre single-lane Bailey Bridge will be needed to replace the washed-out bridge.
The Bailey Bridge, which is a portable, pre-fabricated truss bridge, will provide a temporary solution to the issue. The Western Bay of Plenty District Council has assured the public that a permanent solution will be put in place in the future.
The project is expected to be completed in the coming weeks, and we are confident that the bridge will be installed in a timely and safe manner. The replacement of the bridge will be a significant milestone for the affected residents, allowing them to get back to their daily lives.
We are grateful for the opportunity to be part of this project and to work alongside the Western Bay of Plenty District Council, WestLink, and HEB Construction to complete this crucial work.
We will continue to work alongside the team until the project is completed successfully.
