New Taramakau Bridge on SH6

SH6 New Taramakau Bridge Project (By Drone), Greymouth, New Zealand The new two-lane bridge will be built between Greymouth and the Kumara Junction, 30 metres downstream of the existing single-lane road and rail bridge. The new bridge will be 250 metres long, 10 metres high and 15 metres wide. The project will see a section of State Highway 6 realigned and an overpass built to take road traffic over the railway line. A 2.5 metre wide, off-road cycle and pedestrian facility that will link into an existing cycle track will also be built. The existing bridge will remain in place and will be used solely as a rail bridge. The clip-on cycle and walking bridge will be installed at another yet to be determined site. This is a Government Accelerated Regional Roading Project (external link). Fulton Hogan has been awarded the contract for the project. Work is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.
