If there is one thing I feel that we should be praising the NZTA for in recent years it is that they have really upped their game when it comes to the design of infrastructure and probably the most noticeable of these has been in the various foot bridges they have erected on some of the motorway projects. The first part of latest of these unique bridges was installed last night on the southern side of the Newmarket viaduct and is intended to replace the existing footbridge that crossed the motorway and rail lines.
And here is what it will look like when finished in a few weeks time:
Interestingly it is very similar design to the NZTA logo:
Personally I think it looks great and as mentioned there have been a number of other uniquely designed bridges in recent years, here are some of the examples and some of the planned bridges for the future:
