Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We crossed this bridge several times during our stay in Auckland. It is just a bridge which normally gets very busy with traffic. There is no pedestrian access which means that it is impossible to walk across it. It is a very poor second to Sydney Harbour bridge.

This is not a tourist attraction. It's an essential transport route that connects the North Shore with the CBD. I don't recommend spending any time on looking at this, apart from at a distance, e.g., when you're sitting outside a restaurant at Commercial Bay or similar.

Pretty far from the city centre. Overall not worth the effort and time. Cannot compare to harbour bridges elsewhere in the world.

I took a ferry just to go under the bridge. Nice view. Worth it. Took a lot of pictures. A bit like London.

eight-lane motorway bridge over the Waitematā is very interesting. It joins St Marys Bay on the Auckland city side with Northcote on the North Shore side. It is part of State Highway 1 and the Auckland Northern Motorway. The bridge is operated by the NZ Transport Agency.

The Auckland Harbour Bridge is a massive bridge over the Waitemata Harbour in Auckland. It is about two thirds of a mile long and it is the second longest bridge in New Zealand. Good views.

Auckland Harbor Bridge has suffered substantial damage. The bridge is now only four lanes. Allow 4-5 hours may be more to cross. Check NZTA online for updates. Travel late at night or very very early in the morning. A large 22-meter steel beam was damaged by collision with a huge truck. The repair, the patch up may last till December 2020. From time to time the bridge might be completely closed.
