Out walking to Sutton Salt Lake near Middlemarch, Otago, New Zealand, in better weather earlier this year, we crossed this bridge of planks. I am guessing the dip in the ground under it makes it essential in wet weather. Seemed so out of place.

It was a bit odd, Hans55. The reeds growing along the side give a clue as to how wet it gets. I believe when it rains a lot, the area it is built over is very swampy.

Thanks LizSA, someone told me that after a lot of rain it is needed as a bridge. It is planks of wood and covered in a wire mesh to prevent slipping in the wet. Definitely for walking on.

Looks funny in dry weather, like a bridge form nowhere to nowhere! Now, after all your rain, would be the time to confirm your idea! ??

If it was closer to home I would throw on my gumboots and go trekking to see. Maybe a wallow in the mud while i'm there.

Mudwallowing can be fun! But in the winter?? I think not :-))
