Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Not being used to either heavy traffic or multi-lane highways anymore, we both dreaded making our way through greater Auckland on the motorway again, and across the Auckland Bridge.

As you can see here, the addition of 4 lanes in the early 1970s (2 on each side) unfortunately ruined what had been a beautiful bridge.
