Smashing job! Demolishing the Park Estate Bridge

  • 25 May 2022

The team were crushing it overnight on the SH1 Papakura to Drury project on Saturday 21 May 2022! Following months of planning and preparation, the old Park Estate Road bridge was successfully demolished overnight during an extended 14-hour full closure of Auckland’s Southern Motorway between Papakura and Drury. The bridge demolition and clean up all went according to plan and the motorway reopened two hours ahead of schedule on the Sunday morning. This milestone having been achieved, the way is now clear for the team to start building the second half of the replacement bridge in the gap created.
