From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 21 January 2020

The Mayor of Whanganui says he accepts responsibility for delays in the construction of the Upokongaro Cycle Bridge on State Highway 4 - a crucial link in the Mountain to Sea and National cycleways.

The structure has been parked in a paddock on the western riverbank since late 2018 - and is now jokingly referred to as the region's "second bridge to nowhere".
