Te Wero Bridge animation

15 September 2008

Hyder Consulting, Denton Corker Marshall and Kenneth Grubb Associates winning design for Auckland, New Zealand’s Te Wero Bridge is a twin leaf bascule bridge, with a mast structure that houses counter weights and a control room. The NZ$ 50 million (US$ 35 million) bridge will have a clear opening span of more than 40 m to retain boat access to the Viaduct Harbour. Constructed with a lightweight aluminum deck the design of the counterweight results in very low energy use. The material selection also gives excellent durability and provides a sustainable low maintenance solution. Auckland City Council sees the Te Wero bridge, which will carry cyclists, pedestrians, passenger transport and possibly light rail, as vital to its plans for the future success of the wider waterfront and Central Business District regeneration.
