The Way to Go group is exploring future options for crossing the Kimiākau Shotover River, and the role the Edith Cavell Bridge plays in that.


The Edith Cavell Bridge is a well-known local landmark named to recognise the heroic efforts and ultimate sacrifice of an English World War I nurse.

After 100 years of providing a vital link for the Queenstown-Wakatipu community, the Way to Go Partners (Queenstown Lakes District Council, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the Otago Regional Council) are exploring future options for crossing the Kimiākau Shotover River, and the role the Edith Cavell Bridge plays in that.

This investigation will play an important role in providing long-term resilience to the wider transport network, encouraging the use of public transport and increasing opportunities for active travel. As options are explored we will make sure they are considered in a holistic way so that they complement wider proposals to improve our journeys around Wakatipu.

We have landed on a short list of proposed options for the future and invite you to read through the material and share your thoughts.
