Pelorus Bridge Scaffold

Pelorus Bridge Scaffold

The Pelorus Bridge was built in 1956.  In 2008 it was included in Transit New Zealand's programme for seismic retrofit.

The scaffold was a challenge, with only a small two metre wide shelf that we could build off up to the bridge.  We spanned out, tied to the bridge twice, then firstly dropped the scaffold eight metres down towards the water line, and then dropped it another two metres so that the geologist could do a rock map to decide where the eight 15 metre long rock anchors would be put.

There was a flood warning part way through the job, when we had to raise the scaffold seven metres off the water line until work could start again.

This job is featured in the projects on the
Layher website.
