Hutt City Council Bridge Maintenance Update
MMS Group Wellington has recently been awarded a Bridge Maintenance Contract by Hutt City Council to carry out maintenance work at 19 sites across Lower Hutt City. Our team has been completing concrete patch and crack repairs, structural steel repairs, ultra high waterblasting, sand blasting, and applying protective coatings.
One of the 19 sites included building a 45-meter sea wall at Lowry Bay, Eastbourne. MMS Group coordinated our concrete pouring works with the tides and our traffic management plan to ensure minimal disruption to the public.
Our team excavated a 300mm wide trench alongside the current nib wall using an excavator, boxed using 1.2m trench shield to give added protection from the incoming tides while the concrete cured. A total of 21 cubic meters of concrete was poured over three days and included concrete to fill the void areas under the current nib wall that had previously been washed away by the sea.
Expected date of completion is June 2021 – we will be sure to keep you updated on our team’s progress!
