Join Horizons Regional Council and the Kopane community as we celebrate the completion of the new Kopane Bridge.

Kopane was severely affected by flooding in February 2004. Flood waters swept through Kopane School, farmers lost stock and homes were under water. This new bridge will help allow for the passage of the Oroua River during a one in 100 year flood, protecting the Kopane community from the impact of major flood events.

A bridge building competition between Kopane School students and Horizons' engineers will be held at the Gun Club alongside the Kopane Bridge from 9.30am Saturday February 4th 2012. This will be followed by official opening formalities at 10.

Anyone with an interest is encouraged to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
