Update on Mangaweka Bridge Project

March 14, 2022

The joint project between Rangitīkei District Council and Manawatū District Council to build a new bridge at Mangaweka is expected to be completed ahead of time, in June, one month earlier than the anticipated July completion date.

As part of the construction and testing programme, some vehicles had been given access over the new bridge; that phase is now complete. Further construction is programmed for the future, but the bridge will not be open for public use until all aspects of the project are complete.

The completion of the entire project will be celebrated with a formal opening.
