I saw this bridge in a recent copy of Walking New Zealand magazine, and she’s a beauty.
An 80m long pedestrian/cycle crossing over the Waiwhakaiho River--part of the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway—it’s only really let down by those aesthetically pedestrian railings. And just look at the way it focuses walkers on the mountain.
It was designed and built by a consortium led by local company Whitaker Civil Engineering Limited, and including Novare Design, CPG and Fitzroy Engineering. Paid for by taxpayers and New Plymouth’s long-suffering ratepayers, for sure, but so much better value for money than their bloody Wind Wand.
