Waianakarua Bridge


State Highway 1, Waianakarua

An example of the work of John Turnbull Thomson, chief surveyor for the Otago Provincial Government, this twin-arched limestone bridge was constructed in 1874. Widened and strengthened during 2004-5, it is one of the oldest bridges still in use on a main state highway. The bridge is best viewed from the grounds of the adjacent Mill-House.
