The scope includes building of new pier structure and removal of the two existing column.

Geographic extent

The Ellerslie Pier Support is located on Main Highway over SH1.

Project challenges to date:

• Working at height next to live 25KV Rail overhead cable

• Timing of work including material delivery while Rail is still on service and traffic on State Highway 1.

• Load transferring from the old column into the new pier structure while SH1 traffic and Main Highway Traffic is still live.
