Lower Hatea River Crossing - Te Matau ? Pohe, Whangarei, New Zealand
Lower Hatea River crossing in New Zealand, designed by Knight Architects, is a striking realisation at the centre of Whangarei District Council’s 20 year transportation strategy which is now in its final stages.
Officially named Te Matau ? Pohe or “The Fishhook of Pohe”, the rolling bascule structure is designed to be recognisable by day and night, providing a positive gateway to the town basin area and as a structure that speaks strongly of the local character and culture of Whang?rei.
The project is now the subject of a breath-taking drone film which shows the intricacies of the function and form of this unique structure.
