The New Mohaka River Bridge

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. J.R. Bewick
