    The Te Rewa Rewa Bridge is an 80 meter long bridge for pedestrian and bicycle users spanning the Waiwhakaiho River in New Plymouth, New Zealand.

     
    New Plymouth was chosen as one of two walking & bicycling “Model Communities” by the New Zealand national government in 2010.

    Coincidentally, 80 meters is about the same distance we need to cross the Cristina River in order to complete the Wilmington-to-New Castle Bicycle Highway.
