Work is underway constructing the long-awaited pedestrian and cycle bridge between Matakana Road and Tamahunga Drive in Matakana.
The design features two methods of getting on to the bridge itself – one is straight down a set of steps from the first speed bump on Tamahunga Drive. The other is a 1 in 12 gradient slope that loops around from the speed bump, out almost to Matakana Road, and back down towards the stream.
Work was originally planned to start on the build last June. It is due to be completed in March.
