Contractors have begun construction work on a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the Leith by the Forsyth Barr Stadium.
The 1.4 million dollar bridge is the latest link in Dunedin's cycle and walking network.
The bridge will span the Leith between the railway and the harbour, connecting the State Highway 88 shared path to cycleways around the inner harbour and into the central city.
Access to shared paths in the area will be retained, with a detour around the work site on the Magnet Street side.
Wendy Frew told her Southern Steel team-mates they were in for a treat yesterday, and she did not disappoint them.
The Steel netball team, Southland Sharks basketball team, and the Southland cricket team have all won national titles this year.
In response, the Invercargill City Council decided to throw a ticker-tape parade to celebrate.
Over two thousand Southland pupils are being given the opportunity to discover their future career at this week’s CareerFest Southland, being held in Invercargill.
Around seventy exhibitors from a diverse range of industries are participating in this year’s careerfest, making it the biggest event to date.
