The New Old Mangere Bridge

This new footbridge to connect Mangere and Onehunga replaces the current well-worn bridge, which is a key link for cyclists and pedestrians from both communities. It sits beside SH20, curved in form to allow ample visibility of the entire bridge for users, and permit the current bridge to remain in use whilst the new one is constructed. The structure is supported by an efficient load bearing arch, eloquently creating a design feature whilst providing a key functional requirement.

The bridge is extra wide, with additional bays to accommodate a variety of pursuits, from walking and cycling to fishing and generally hanging about. The project is currently going through consents, with construction due to start in later in 2016.
