The wannabe bridle bridge was a Waiheke Local Board project dreamt up by Waiheke Local Board Chair, Paul Walden, approved by the other four members of the board, and paid for by Waiheke ratepayers. It sits in a site of ecological significance near the entrance to Onetangi Sports Park on O’Brien’s Road, unloved, unused, and unfriendly to the natural environment.
Worse still, even more ratepayers money has been spent on the useless bridge to replace its surface.
Nothing, but nothing, could sum up the failure of Walden and this Waiheke Local Board better than this complete waste of time, effort and money.
Thanks for nothing Waiheke Local Board.
