We have made it safer for people to walk and bike between The Lakes and Tauranga Crossing.
A 34m long bridge was lifted into position on Wednesday, 3 April, over SH36. Following the lift was a month of finishing work including minor earthworks, landscaping, fencing and installation of street furniture. The bridge opened to the public mid-May 2019. It creates a safe connection between The Lakes residential area and Tauriko business estate.
This work follows the installation of the Whakapaiwaka overbridge that was built last year over SH29 Takitimu Drive, connecting Bethlehem and Gate Pa.
