NewMarket Bridge (Auckland)
One of the largest jobs in the world of its kind, the Newmarket Viaduct Replacement Project involved constructing a new bridge while demolishing the existing one in stages, allowing traffic to continue to cross. Due to its location and close proximity to the public, no explosives could be used. The South and North bound bridges were deconstructed using WireCom’s diamond wire to cut approximately 498 segments and 48 piers. The webbing set inside the concrete of the bridge was 1800MPa/26000psi which made sawing extremely difficult, but the WireCom wire performed well.
