The Rakaia Bridge is New Zealand's longest road bridge and crosses the Rakaia river one of Cantebury's large braided rivers. The present bridge was opened in 1939 and replaced an earlier combined road and rail bridge from 1873. The present road bridge is just downstream from the rail bridge and forms part of State Highway 1 (SH1).
