Shotover River Bridge

The road bridge across the Shotover River in Central Otago, near Queenstown, was described at its opening in 1975 as "mathematical precision combined with beautiful form". The two-lane carriageway is 320 metres long and is made up of 169 pre-cast, pre-tensioned concrete box girder sections.
