The Manawatu River appears to be in flood in this photograph. Scaffolding is still in evidence so presumably the photographs were taken just prior to the official opening in July 1935. This replaced the original structure built in 1877. It was constructed by Fletcher Construction and remained until 1986 when it proved too small for the volume of traffic, particularly as it serves the main route to Massey University.
