Te Matau a Pohe The Blessing and Procession
Northland

Te Matau a Pohe- Whangarei's new Bridge.

The concept of the bridge spanning the Hatea River between Okara Drive and Riverside Drive has come to completion with this opening day.

The start of the day was marked by a blessing by local Kaumatua followed by a symbolic walk from Pohe Island. The Bascule, raised before, was lowered as the party approached, then across the bridge they came towards Okara.

In the pre-dawn darknes this was both eerie and thought-provoking.
