Aongatete Bridge, Katikati (1899).


Photograph of the Aongatete Bridge. The bridge spans the Aongatete River which flows northwest from the Kaimai Ranges then enters Tauranga Harbour to the south of Katikati. In 1908 the bridge was repaired as reported in the Bay of Plenty Times: AONGATETE TO TAURANGA SECTION. The repairs to the Aongatete bridge have been successfully carried out and all is now completed; all decayed timber has been replaced with sound material, and the work has been thoroughly carried out and the structure is now in excellent condition and good for another 10 or 12 years (16 November 1908, p. 3).
