The Chairman said he was very struck by the close relationship between a discussion meeting on productivity held at the Institution in January 1963 and the paper just presented. On the author’s chart a period for contract planning was allowed for immediately after the contract had been let. The same suggestion had been made in the Institution at the discussion on productivity.
The Institution welcomes as its President for Session 1964-65 H. C. Husband, CBE,
BEng, MIStructE, MICE, MIMechE, who takes office on 1 October.
The paper describes the new highway bridge to carry the Napier-Taupo road over the Upper Mohaka River in Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand. The choice of the type of bridge and factors influencing the design are discussed. An account is given of the construction of the substructure and the erection of the superstructure from each bank. The metbod used to join the two halves at the centre and convert the bridge to its final cantilever-suspended span form is described.
