Bridges

We manage 518 bridges in the Tasman District and each year some are earmarked for replacement or maintenance.

There are a number of historical suspension bridges with the oldest being the 91.4 metre Pokororo foot bridge at Ngatimoti, built in 1894. Others include the Salisbury footbridge over the Aorere River in Golden Bay, built in 1902 and washed away in 2010, and the Baton River footbridge which was built in 1906.

The image on the right is a picture of the James Road bridge in Bainham under contruction in 2012.
