Watch an animated video of the Nelson Street cycleway in action.

The last of seven sections of the Canada Street Bridge was lifted into place on the morning of Thursday 15 October 2015, completing the 160m-long connection from Canada Street to the old Nelson Street off-ramp.

The completion of the new bridge is a significant milestone towards completing the first phase of the Nelson Street cycleway.

The NZ Transport Agency has released the animated video above, which shows how Phase 1 will look when it’s completed.

The cycleway stretches from Upper Queen Street to Victoria Street and is expected to open in early December 2015.

Phase 2 will extend to Quay Street and be open by the middle of 2016.

The bridge design is already being recognised internationally and has been shortlisted in the World Architecture Awards, which will be announced in Singapore in November 2015.
