This RFT is for the supply of new steel rail beams for the approximately 222m long Taramakau River rail bridge (Bridge 13) on the Hokitika Line between Greymouth and Hokitika on the West Coast.
The bridge was originally built as a single-lane combined road and rail bridge. Waka Kotahi (then NZTA) constructed a new separate road bridge further downstream in recent years.
The track structure is supported by hardwood timber rail beams. Due to the age of the timber, they have become split and decayed reducing their load capacity, therefore they have been identified for replacement.
