Bridge 26 Midline Line, Christchurch

The Midland Line is a 212km long section of railway which connects Rolleston and Greymouth in the South Island. This important piece of infrastructure is part of the KiwiRail Scenic Journeys and TranzAlpine routes as well as Freight including coal and even dairy products. Bridge 26 is over 80 years old, to support this aging infrastructure and ensure reliability in the years to come, Concrete Solutions® has completed strengthening using the Tyfo® Fibrwrap® System. Two layers of Tyfo® SCH-41 was installed to the two piers as well as Tyfo® A, a durable acrylic protective coating for weather protection and aesthetic considerations.
