Laura BinnsI've just read on stuff that we're now looking at an October opening. Very disappointed as I was hoping to use it to get to work when I start my new job next week. Your project management skills leave a lot to be desired - summer, end of summer, soon, Sep, oct - please will you give a realistic timeframe for this to be finished so that we can make plans? Thanks.

Many of you have probably been watching as the green bridge for the Te Awa The Great NZ River Ride has been taking shape in Ngaruawahia on land between Great South Rd and the Waikato River.The bridge will be installed across the river sometime between 31 July and 18 August. If you are planning on using the river during this time please approach the site with caution, keep an eye out for obstructions, and follow instructions from the onsite construction staff.Also please do not to go to the site to watch. The site is situated on private land. We will be videoing the bridge as it goes over the river and will share this with you when it is completed.

Ashlée HooperNo wonder I couldn't see it when I biked to the top of Te Awa The Great NZ River Ride - I was looking in the wrong place!Hope the measurements are correct and it's wide enough for the river.
