Project Details:

A $70 million bridge across a Manawatū floodplain has emerged from the mud.

Rockbond worked with the team from Brian Perry Civil to provide a wide range of structural solutions for this impressive structure.

The bridge deck team utilised our release agents, curing compounds, surface retarders and anti-vap, on the many pours that they did over the months of construction.

Rockbond’s epoxy grout was used for grouting the huge precast super T’s to the bridge bearing plates, providing a high-spec long life solution.

Rockbond’s remedial products were used for concrete repairs, including underwater repairs to the bridge columns on the river bridge.

Rockbond also supplied the release agents and epoxy mortar to the Brian Perry precast yard at Otaihanga, for the many precast barriers and bridge T’s that were installed along the length of the bridge.
