The modern engineer:

The modern engineer is ever ready to reap the kudos from shiny-arsed bureaucrats...

"It's a great piece of infrastructure - innovative and great to look at. It's a piece of functioning art."

An art installation?  Must be OK then.

Meanwhile in other news...

awards come hot on the heels of council reissuing a warning to boaties the Te Matau a Pohe bridge may be closed for periods days over 26C, as steel expansion means it could potentially jam.

Because it was such an innovative piece of infrastructure, it was possible engineers were going to encounter the occasional glitch such as steel expansion in hot weather

Eh?  Steel expands in hot weather?

In the real world would you happily pay for such so called engineers designing your roadway?  I think not!
