Bridge to Nowhere

  


New Zealand has its very own Bridge to Nowhere.  You'll find it in the North Island near Whanganui.  It is a concrete road bridge spanning a stream.  No roads are connected to it at either end.

 


It was built in the mid 30's with the intention of providing access to areas that could then be settled.  Despite the good intentions the land proved too remote and unsuitable for farming.

 


You can access this bridge by boat or by hiking.
