The Tauranga Eastern Link provides a much needed transport corridor in the Bay of Plenty. It has been recognised by the government of New Zealand as a road of national significance.
It is designed as a four lane highway and includes in total seven bridges. The Eastern Link begins at Te Maunga in Tauranga and ends at the existing junction of State Highways 2 and 33 near Paengaroa.
The Tauranga Eastern Link reduces the travelling time between the regions and hence supports the regional growth.
mageba supplied both RESTON®POT bearings and LASTO®BLOCK elastomeric bearings for the Tauranga Eastern link.
The LASTO®BLOCK elastomeric bearings carry a maximum vertical load of 8,100 kN. All twelve elastomer bearings are produced from natural Rubber (NR) and are reinforced with steel plates.
The RESTON®POT bearings installed in the bridges of the Tauranga Eastern Link have a maximal load carrying capacity of 3,330 kN. Both the LASTO®BLOCK elastomeric bearings and the RESTON®POT bearings are designed and manufactured in accordance with EN 1337 and therefore marked with the CE label.
