Reinforced Earth Ltd is currently working with CPB HEB joint venture on the Transmission Gully Project in New Zealand.   The design of this 27km motorway between Wellington and the lower North Island is complex due to the steep and difficult terrain.   In April, a Reinforced Earth® TechSpan® arch crossing was constructed as an element of the Bridge 3 component of this project.   Here is a photograph of the 14m span arch and a link to a video filmed by the NZ Transport Agency that brings this structure to life.
