New Zealand's Bridges: Oxford Street Bridge into the Port of Lyttleton (1)

March (-43.605 Degrees, 172.622 Degrees) Oxford Street Bridge

We are in the port town of Lyttleton where 61% of imports and 34% of the exports to and from the South Island are handled. It is also the closest location to the February earthquake, although we could find little damage to this bridge. That unfortunately was not the case for the town of Lyttleton, which looked battered by the earthquake. 

The Oxford Street Bridge is a long, winding, steel plate girder bridge on pier walls across roads and rails that goes between the hills and the Port at Lyttleton.
