Upper Hutt rail bridge to be raised

An Upper Hutt rail bridge crashed into by over-sized trucks is being upgraded to create extra clearance space.

The bridge near Silverstream will be receiving the first of three new spans today to replace the temporary ones in place since the bridge was struck by a truck last January.

Its current clearance height is 4.15 metres but it will be raised in January when the other spans are installed.
