Wairau Stream Pedestrian Bridge

— Hyspecs Hydraulics

Design, Build, Commission & Maintain

Hyspecs worked with local construction companies and Auckland City Council to provide the hydraulics for the lifting bridge.

The bridge is raised and lowered on demand when boats leave or enter the marina.

The bridge is unmanned so reliability and safety is critical. Hyspecs designed and manufactured the hydraulic powerunit, valve blocks and cylinders at it's Auckland branch. The interconnecting tube and hose ends were all stainless steel and installed over a week by our on-site service team.

Commissioning was completed during peak summer season with minimum disruption to boat traffic. The bridge has been well received by locals.
