Sweeping Spiral

Eye-catching pedestrian/cycleway bridge in the suburb of Green Island, Dunedin, New Zealand. This is the main street end of the bridge; it has a spiral ramp connecting street and bridge. The bridge spans a stream and motorway, crossing over to an extensive residential area. We’ve long wanted to stop and have a closer look and finally got around to it on Christmas Day – it was our first stop of the morning before driving to the beach south of Brighton.

I was ready to take my first photo when a couple of young lads descended the spiral ramp, one on a bike and the other on his brand new scooter he’d just got for Christmas. Couldn’t believe my good luck 🙂

    1. Great trade Steve, spectacular pedestrian bridge (and I hadn’t previously known about it). Beautiful design that the Austin deserves to be proud of. Thank you!
