Aparima Bridge, Riverton Invercargill

Concrete Solutions® was employed by Downer Ltd to provide additional flexural and shear capacity at the beam to pier connection details; required before installation of new bridge linkage connections.

The design utilised Tyfo® SCH 41 (CFRP) and Tyfo® SCH Anchors allowing the 350Kg linkages enough space to be set back in place without requiring modification. Extensive testing of the FRPinstallation was carried out over the duration of the works providing confidence to the Consulting Engineer and client of the products used.
