Vehicle Bridges / Structural Heritage / Outstanding Value / Sustainability -- Makatote Rail Rejuvination (New Zealand) —
The Makatote rail is considered an important part of New Zealand heritage when it was first built circa 1908. But the viaduct bridges used to support the railway had started to fall apart over time. A rejuvenation of the viaducts was necessary not only for the heritage of the railway, but also to accommodate other trains in the future.
