The Waiwhakaiho Bridge upgrade is soon to be under way with tenders closing in three weeks.

There is scaffolding erected under the bridge and what appears to be geotechnical work going on.

New Plymouth District Council roading boss Max Aves said the design was complete and the project was in the bidding stage, with potential construction companies inspecting the site.
