Whangarei’s councillors, council staff and operating contractors all gathered together for the ceremonial 10,000th lift since its official opening in July 2013. The 10,000 lifts are equivalent to the bridge rolling on its large tracks a total of 125km, or to put it another way: the distance between Whangarei and Auckland!
