Major deconstruction work in Newmarket: Broadway works

|

Part of Newmarket's Broadway will be reduced to one lane each way from 7am to 8pm this Saturday and Sunday [12 and 13 March] for deconstruction work on the old southbound Newmarket Viaduct. The affected section of road, between Mortimer Pass and Alpers Ave, will also be closed completely overnight during the weekend.

With the first half of the new viaduct now open, the old southbound viaduct is being dismantled, piece by piece, as Stage 2 of the Newmarket Connection: Viaduct Replacement Project. Over 30 individual segments, each weighing approximately 60-tonne, have already been lowered to the ground and transported off-site to be crushed for recycling.

Stage 2 works are also being carried out at the viaduct’s southern abutment. Here, a more conventional approach to demolition is taking place due to the tight working environment between the motorway on-ramp and rail corridor.

This weekend’s traffic management measures are being put in place to ensure the safety of vehicles and pedestrians. Shops and businesses will remain open as normal, with vehicle access to Mahuru St available from Nuffield St. Access will also be provided for residents on Edgerley Ave.

The project team plans to lower a segment down next to Broadway on Saturday afternoon. Please note that this is a change to the previously advertised programme of Sunday morning. Anyone interested in viewing this event should check the newsfeed on the project’s website on or after midday Friday March 11 for an update on the timing. www.nzta.govt.nz/newmarketconnection(external link)
