Did you walk across the Auckland Harbour Bridge when it first opened in 1959? Work on the construction of the clip-on lanes in 1969? Collect tolls from drivers until the bridge became free in 1984?

We’re researching stories for our Tāmaki Herenga Waka: Stories of Auckland exhibition opening next year and want to hear from anyone with early memories of the Auckland Harbour Bridge and how it changed life for Aucklanders, especially on the North Shore.
