SCT Operations team part of award winning project for New Zealand earthquake recovery
SCT Operations was engaged by NCTIR to conduct the geotechnical assessment, design, construction supervision and monitoring of four one-way road tunnels totalling approximately 200m in length. The unsupported road tunnels had been initially constructed at least 80 years ago in greywacke rock through narrow headlands adjacent the coast. The tunnels required widening as part of the NCTIR work program to improve clearances for large vehicles and to increase the capacity of the highway. The design requirement called for a 100yr design life of the structural support elements as well as relatively tight construction timeframe to support key road re-opening milestones whilst minimising travel delays to the road users.
SCT are proud to have worked alongside other NCTIR consultants and contractors on an award-winning project.
