On Monday for our Parkinsons' walk we walked over the Te Matau a Pohe Bridge and then alongside the dog park before returning over the bridge again - it was a pleasant walk. The bridge opened just before we started our walk and then again while we were going over it. It is interesting to see how much higher it would have to be if it didn't have the bascule. It was a busy time as it opened yet again while we were by the dog park.
Although we had rain/showers forecast for the long weekend (Anzac Weekend) it kept fine in spite of the clouds.
If you enlarge the photos and click on them quickly you get a good view of the bridge opening.
