Haywards Interchange pedestrian bridge taking shape

|

The last major structure needed for the State Highway 2/State Highway 58 Haywards Interchange is taking shape, with the first of four reinforced concrete beams for the new Manor Park pedestrian overbridge to be placed over Labour Weekend.

The project team is taking advantage of the usual ‘block of line’ rail closures over the long weekend to carry out this essential work above the rail corridor. Otherwise, the work would need to wait until the Christmas/New Year break. 

Four beams are needed for the overbridge, which will link Manor Park Station with Annabell Grove. The work can be completed without the need for full road closures, since the beams rest on a central pier in the middle of State Highway 2. 

The footbridge beams that will span State Highway 2 are being placed during the nights of Tuesday 25 October and Monday 31 October. As with the main (vehicle) bridge beams installed earlier in the year, the installations are weather-dependent and may be postponed due to high winds.

“Installing the pedestrian overbridge beams is a major milestone for the project, and marks the end of the major structural work needed for the interchange,” says NZ Transport Agency Regional Performance Manager Mark Owen.

“Once it’s complete, we’ll switch focus to building the tie-ins linking the existing highway to the interchange.”

Other work needed to complete the interchange includes:

  • a large retaining wall to strengthen State Highway 58 where it will join the interchange
  • planting, landscaping and general finishing works
  • installation of street and pathway lighting, signage and barriers
  • sealing, line marking and surface detailing
  • completion of the cycle bypasses
  • completion of the revised Manor Park Station pedestrian access, both across the new bridge and from Golf Road
  • installation of electronic variable message signboards
  • installing kerbs and channels and connecting them to drainage systems.

The $43 million interchange is scheduled for completion in June 2017.
