Taramakau Road-Rail Bridge

4/5
1 Reviews
Bridge
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 5 hours
Address: State Highway 6 | Hokitika Industrial Line, Hokitika, New Zealand

What people are saying:

This is a train-only bridge across the Hokitika River. Although the architectural design of the bridge is not magnificent, when the somewhat old train passes the railway bridge over the clear river, it also shows another view of the countryside.

    Bypassed.

    I was looking forward to the challenge of driving this when heading down the West Coast on our holiday. I was disappointed to find a new bypass bridge had been built and you couldn't drive through it...

    It's a bridge

    Very useful for crossing the Taramakau River - with this being in place it helps one avoid needing to swim across, which was very useful. Facilities include a roadway and some signs. Will certainly us...
