Waiau Branch : Weka Pass - 3Q


This concrete culvert was built in 1936 to take Archers Stream under the viaduct so that the embankment could be built to replace it. The way in which the viaduct was filled in in its latter stages by trains was a similar system to that used by the Public Works Department to build railways around the countryside before the availability of modern road machinery.
