The Whitipoua Bridge is part of our recreation trail network, connecting our residents with green spaces and creating a safe place for people to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. The bridge was erected in 2022 and houses more than 20 unique paewhiri panels. The panels are made of recovered swamp totara, carved by CNC machine with the artwork of nine Māori artists. The stories contained in these pieces tell the story of the river’s past, present and future.
We are creating an interactive tour to showcase the artists and their work so please check back here for more information in the coming months.
