2 BRIDGES IN THE FAR NORTH

We have built another 2 cable suspension walkway bridges in the Far North. They are both in the Twin Coast bike trail, and cross over 2 historic railway truss bridges – on the inside – so don’t get hit by a train! They were 25 and 76m long respectively.

These were a design and build – so we won the job with our own design – how’s that for diversity?

KAIKOURA CONTINUES…

We are even more busy with the huge amount of slips on the roads into and out of Kaikoura, with more teams joining to help get things done as quickly as possible. We will be continuing our efforts through into the new year – interesting times ahead!

If you think you have got what it takes to join the A-Team – give us a call!

4 BRIDGES IN 4 MONTHS – STARTING WITH THE MAKARA PEAK BIKE PARK BRIDGE

It has been a busy time, what with 4 walkway suspension bridges in various beautiful locations being put up in 4 months.

As a joint non-profit venture with the Makara Peak supporters, we joined forces and built this spectacular 76m long suspension bridge as a vital link in the new Easy-Up track to the top of the mountain.

Thanks to Wellington’s City Council for their support and project management.

KAIKOURA EARTHQUAKE

The recent Kaikoura earthquake sequence has brought many slips cutting off vital rail and road infrastructure. The NZ slang word munted has become the official description. Still, even the longest journey starts with a single step and the clean up process is now well under way.

Abseil Access crews have been there since day 1 and ultra busy trundling the almost infinite number of boulders on the numerous new slips on SH1 and SH70. Every tool in the book has been used from airbags, explosives, helicopters and monsoon buckets.

A sterling effort all round. So much more to go…
