Digital Media students are currently working on the latest PP2Ō monthly update. This month they are documenting the demolition of the old north end bridge. Matariki Black, Iraia Sarich and Whetu Rehu-Murchie have been out in the community interviewing people who remember it being built - 81 years ago! Some of the people interviewed remember when County Road was the only way north out of town. And one gentleman could roller skate across the bridge when it was built because cars were 10 minutes apart! 
The film crew were  there on Monday filming the demolition as the bridge came down.
