historic Tauranga harp bridge remedial works
Frame Group Ltd
Waioeka Gorge, Opotiki
The historic Tauranga bridge is one of the last (Harp) styles left. it has very strong historical values, some of the hardwood beams beneath the decking timbers were getting very rotten so to prolong its life span we had to remove the old hardwood decking planks, clean the old beams and treat them with preservative, bolt new glulam beams to the old timbers, refit the original decking planks. Its still looking original and good to last another 100 years!!!
