Wynyard Crossing

Auckland, New Zealand

Wynyard Crossing

Wynyard Crossing is a new double bascule walking / cycling bridge built in 2011 in Auckland, New Zealand. It connects the redeveloped Wynyard Quarter with Te Wero Island and the existing Viaduct Harbour entertainment district, and thereby, with the wider Auckland waterfront. The 100-metre-long (330 ft) bridge is able to lift to allow watercraft passage into the Viaduct Harbour area, with a 36-metre-wide (118 ft) channel created by lifting two 22 m movable sections. Even closed and at high tide, the bridge will still allow a 3 m clearance, meaning smaller boats do not require the spans to be raised. Opening and closing the bridge will take 90, respectively 60 seconds, controlled by an on-site operator contactable by boats via radio.
