The cost of this new bridge is estimated to be NZ$21-22 Million and hopefully motorists will be travelling over the  two-lane bridge by the end of the year, although this may be only one-way.

Drivers will be using both the new bridge and the existing bridge to provide two-way traffic across Kawarau Falls, which believe me will be a relief for Kelvin Heights residents. These restrictions will remain until mid-2018 while work on the bridge and installation of the water and wastewater pipelines for Queenstown Lakes District Council is completed.
