Auckland Harbour bridge

150,000 vehicles per day , built late 1950's original span in centre. Two lanes added either side with extensions built in Japan - fondly known as the Nippon clip-ons 
The centre barrier has a machine that lifts and moves it across two lanes morning and evening giving a 3-5 lane split in peak hours (5 south bound in the morning and 5 north in the evening), with. 4 - 4 split off peak

Ah, the harbour bridge. I think of it fondly... outside of rush hour and when NOT travelling on the Nippon Clip-ons!
