A 35-year-old man is dead after falling from a bridge on the Kapiti Coast.

The man fell from a bridge over the Otaki River off Otaki Gorge Road on Thursday about 5.45pm on Thursday.

He died at the scene, says Senior Sergeant Steve Crawford.

The death has been referred to the coroner. No further details were available.

Police said the bridge was a swing bridge but a Fire Service spokesman says it was a more substantial structure used for vehicle access.
