“The Balclutha Road Bridge, which spans the Clutha River in Balclutha, South Otago, New Zealand, is one of the best-known road bridges in New Zealand's South Island.”
The reinforced concrete arched bridge of the bowstring principal which now spans the Clutha River was officially opened on 6 April 1935. The bridge is located on the site of the ferry that was used until the first bridge was opened in 1868. This structure was washed away in the great flood of 1878. A second bridge was opened on 11 November 1881 and was replaced by the existing bridge.
On 13 December 1990 the Balclutha Road Bridge was classified as a Category I Historic Place by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Another bridge, the Balclutha Rail Bridge, stands several hundred metres downstream.
