Watch: Drone footage of new Waterview bridge

By Aimee Shaw

The New Zealand Transport Agency has released footage of a drone flying over the partially constructed footbridge located near the tunnel exit at Hendon Avenue, Mount Albert.

The 300 metre long footbridge which spans SH20 (Southwestern Motorway) at the southern approach to the Waterview tunnels will give pedestrians and cyclists access between Owairaka and New Windsor.

It will also connect the southern shared path and sports ground on Valonia Street and Barrymore Road in Mount Albert.

Auckland's Waterview Connection project is the largest in the country, costing an estimated $1.4 billion.

The footbridge is expected to open in early 2017.
