Ava railway bridge crossing over Hutt River

The Ava Train Bridge passes over in Lower Hutt, 20 minutes north of Wellington.

The combined rail and foot passenger bridge is part of the Hutt Valley Line, with trains stopping at Ava Station running to and from Wellington, Taitā, and Upper Hutt.

The 233-metre bridge was constructed in the 1920s by the then-Public Works Department. It has closely spaced concrete piers, and on a fine day provides a pleasant walk across the river.
