Millers Flat Bridge over the mighty Clutha, completed in 1898, is a bowstring arch bridge designed by Robert Hay (1847-1928), the Dunedin-based engineer for Tuapeka County. The bridge is 176.2m long with four steel 4.9m high arch spans. The timber deck is 4.1m wide. The piers are concrete-filled cast iron cylinders driven 9m into the riverbed. The bridge has an interesting history and is still in use today.
The bridge has been registered by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust as a Category 2 historic place
