The bridge delivered is similar to both bridges The concrete box bridge is pre-built by cascading trusses and cable-stayed bridge. The The bridge deck is supported by both prestressed tendons within the concrete and by tendons outside the concrete. The result is an overall more efficient design for bridges with medium to long spans.
Reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20%
Approved design and construction methods will allow Reduce carbon emissions by up to 20% compared to traditional design. The lower entrance to the bridge, which is 550 meters long, will blend into the landscape while reducing the total length of the bridge by 235 meters and thus the amount of steel and concrete used. The The traverse is designed with two berths instead of three in the Wēiti River.
The group is committed to promoting Recycling of materials, use of renewable energy sources and rainwater recovery.
The construction will be carried out while protecting the local flora and fauna through upstream studies and continuous monitoring throughout the duration of the works. Works to be completed in 2026.
