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 100m long bridge is able to lift to allow watercraft passage into the Viaduct Harbour area, with a 36m wide channel created by lifting two 22m movable sections. Even closed and at high tide, the bridge will still allow a 3m 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.
The bridge was proposed after high costs (estimated at $50 million), combined with the Global Financial Crisis, prevented a more sizable structure (capable of carrying buses and trams) from being built in time for the Rugby World Cup 2011. Instead, a less expensive walking and cycling bridge was constructed from prefabricated sections - though the foundations will be strong enough to later bear a more substantial bridge capable of carrying public transport vehicles.
The planned cost of the bridge will be $3.5 million, and piling works started in January 2011. In April 2011, the first of the two 29 ton spans of the lifting bridge was installed. The bridge opened for the public in early August 2011.

Urban Field Studies - Wynyard Quarter waterfront opening
Wynyard Quarter Saturday 6th of August was a busy day in Auckland with two ‘new’ public spaces opening, one in the inner city and the other at its outer edge. I chose to go to the public art opening on the waterfront (while other members of my family elected to take the elicit thrill of cycling on the new motorway in Hobsonville).
