Construction wheels gathering speed on Whale Trail project
As the construction phase for the Whale Trail project begins to accelerate, one of its original proponents has been confirmed as Council’s new appointee to the project. Dr Forrest was on hand recently to see the first truss which has been completed for the Wairau River State Highway 1 clip-on bridge. Twenty-four in total will be built - each 1.5m wide - to make up the 292m length required. The trusses are being built locally by HML Engineering for Fulton Hogan who are responsible for the project.
Representatives from HML Engineering, Fulton Hogan, Waka Kotahi and WSP give the first truss
completed for the new clip-on bridge the thumbs up recently. At centre is new Council appointee to
the Trust, Dr John Forrest
