Waiau Branch : Weka Pass - 3O


The old viaduct at 10.5 km in 1936 during filling in work. Horses and drays were used to move spoil to form an embankment that steadily crept up beneath the viaduct and eventually enclosed its piers and footings. The superstructure was removed in order to complete the filling in job which was finished the following year.
