First cyclists cross the Perry Bridge


More than 1000 people – including hundreds of cyclists – attended the opening of the new Perry Bridge and the northern section of the Te Awa River Ride.

Simon Perry of Te Awa River Ride, Mayor Allan Sanson of the Waikato District Council and Parekawhia McLean of the NZ Transport Agency opened the section, which allows cyclists to travel from Ngaruawahia to Hamilton Gardens.

The trail between the Ngaruawahia Golf Club and the Horotiu Bridge creates an uninterrupted 25km cycle path linking Ngaruawahia with the southern end of Hamilton City.

The new Perry Bridge, a 130m long, 3m wide and 18m high network arch bridge stretching across the Waikato River, was constructed to connect the cycleway over the river.
