In a New Zealand first, CSP Pacific’s Super•Cor® Arch is being used for a culvert across Whakaruatapu Stream near Dannevirke on SH2. The existing level viaduct-style bridge built in 1927, named the ‘skinny bridge’, has long since been a concern because its width of 5.79m means it can’t accommodate trucks passing other vehicles. In addition, the weakening state of its foundations means it is no longer seismically safe.

Most people who have been to Auckland would have travelled over the iconic Victoria Park Viaduct which first opened in 1962 and has carried millions of vehicles in its lifetime.

With the completion of the Victoria Park Tunnel, the viaduct now only carries south, west and city bound traffic and has recently been upgraded with 50 new energy-efficient LED lights and 1.5kms of new curved steel guardrail from CSP Pacific.

The length of need (LoN) is a common term used in relation to road safety barriers. But what does it actually mean?

LoN for a road safety barrier installation is the length of barrier required to shield a roadside hazard and is determined during the barrier design phase.
