#YesterdayInAuckland |#Auckland- Managere Bridge township and the old Bridge- A Gallery-

July 31, 2017


 

At one time in Auckland History, a Township naming Mangere Bridge, located in the Manukau Harbour, Used to be a major suburban hub that interconnects between Mangere Bridge to the Onehunga, in which that township was busy  in up to the mid 1980’s as the final construction of the new constructed  Managere Bridge that became operational in 1983…. In which took ten years to build, to replace the previous one in which still stands today….as a recreational park, part of the Community, in where people now days used it to walk to work, school.. Recreationally fish from the Harbour, with as part of Auckland’s bicycle peddling network also is a resting spot for resting..

Before 1983, the old Mangere Bridge constructed in 1914, it was widely used to the point where bridge up to moment in 1980’s it was beyond saturation point more than Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak International Airport in Kowloon Bay   As the its replacement was still finalized in construction after a ten year stall after stall in construction due to labor disputes..  Back then driving on the old bridge in which Coronation road that lead up into the Mangere Bridge Township was intense intensified as the new bridge waits…  With one of the known traffic also it was one of the known roadways that link up travelling in from Auckland CBD towards Onehunga towards Mangere Bridge Township towards the Jean Batten international Airport- Auckland international Airport…

 

The old Mangere Bridge in which still stands today in which constructed during wartime 1914 in World War one and two, was design to be a wartime bridge the way how it was layout and design was to have elements of being Anti-Tank block, with some sentry towers… as a procedure the harbour also the bridge was mined for just in case.. Interesting enough the bridge itself was designed lowered as to counter any larger wartime or patrol boats from entry the mouth of the harbour…

bike riding is the now replacement of the Old Bridge in which previously serving the heavy automobiles that once saturated it’s tarmac roads..

During those times when the old Mangere Bridge was active, traffic thoroughfare through the Mangere Bridge Township was a lot more intensified than as now today… as now days the traffic is no longer through the main street of the village as it’s completely diverted through Auckland’s South-western Motorway –SH20.. As the large component of traffic is diverted the township has recently enjoyed its now provincial humbling as its thriving growing local community…..
