Cambridge New Zealand gets its high level bridge back
Town is always pretty quite during Fieldays week.
The Tuesday walking group pause in Cook Street, Leamington, New Zealand this morning the 12th of January 2010 for a photograph. Behind them is Victoria Bridge (they have just crossed it from Cambridge beyond) which has spanned the Waikato River for 100 years. This walking group – there are others – has been in existence for twelve years.

Back to Cook Street where I saw the Triumph Stags this morning. Cook Street is all of 200-300 metres long – a brief interlude between roundabouts – running along the Waikato River. It’s uniqueness – it links traffic from the east – Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty with the west – New Plymouth and Taranaki. There are other routes – this is ours.
Proud under her strenuous 24/7 365 workload our lovely 100 year old ‘high level bridge’ – the Victoria Bridge – at 8:15AM this morning, Tuesday the 8th of July 2008, coated in frost and cloaked with Waikato River mist. At both ends bridge guardians, men in Hi Viz, responsible for the day-to-day care and safe use of our toanga stand in the cold air and watch.
