New Plymouth's twin Te Henui Walkway bridges are to be officially opened to the public in two weeks.
"It's going to look pretty good. In 12 months it will look even better when the greenery all grows back," New Plymouth District Council spokesman Jim Willson said yesterday.
People would be free to use the bridges after the official blessing and opening on September 12, he said. Some track work was still to be completed.
The improvement of the track further downstream towards the older footbridge was also progressing well, he said.
The bridges, which allow an easier alternate route in order to circumvent narrow steps, were installed as part of the Let's Go project.
They are aimed at allowing easier access to the popular walkway for prams, cycles and wheelchairs.
