Road Bridge Inspections and Maintenance

Manawatu and Rangitikei District Councils (Infrastructure Shared Services)

Manuwatu and Rangitikei Regions, New Zealand

After being initially commissioned for a one year term to inspect approximately 50% of the council’s roading network, our contract has developed into a full, six-year inspection programme, with the client requesting four-yearly contract extensions.

Our team provides inspections and associated maintenance for bridge and highway structures, including over 530 bridges and large culverts. Bridge inspections are carried out in accordance with New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) rules and policies and subject to rigid health and safety procedures. In addition, our team provides support for all bridge-related engineering issues, and recently investigated and designed the refurbishment of a steel suspension bridge, including deck replacement.

Calibre has completed bridge inspections for seven road controlling authorities in the lower North Island.
