Clock Cambridge New Zealand

Clock Cambridge New Zealand

Cambridge clock lit in the Tricolour to celebrate Bastille Day 2016 and the friendship between Cambridge and Le Quesnoy; a bond forged in WW1. The immediacy of the Bastille Day tragedy in Nice, when this photograph was made on a cold winter evening, adding a sad and reflective significance to the gesture.

  • Cambridge New Zealand has a sister city (twinning or friendship) relationship with Le Quesnoy, France & Bihoro-cho, Hokkaido, Japan.

Victoria, Hamilton & Lake Cambridge New Zealand

SH1 at the white church corner Cambridge New Zealand

The intersection of Hamilton Road and Victoria Street Cambridge New Zealand a.k.a. the White Church corner is losing its SH1 designation. The Rotorua sign is apt as the Auckland-Cambridge-Rotorua connection was significant for travellers in the early days of motoring. The icon beside the New Zealand state highway shield represents The Thermal Explorer Highway a navigation assistance for visitors travelling between Auckland and Hawke’s Bay; though somewhat superfluous to the needs of the locals. Cambridge Branch Railway (under a variety of names) also passed through (or beside) the intersection from 1884 and most of the 20th century.   A roundabout to replace the current road layout, one of a number of planned infrastructure projects, will be constructed later in the year.
