It's a bridge. As bridges go, it's about as good a bridge as any other. Preferable to the Foyle Bridge. It is centrally located bringing you into Derry City Centre.

We travelled over both the top and bottom deck, this bridge is well maintained and looks great. It's the only double deck bridge and I think always feels much safer than the foyle bridge

Originally built as a road and railway bridge, the demise of the railways lead to the bridge being converted to a two tier road bridge

My family and I have been using this bridge since I can remember. Its upper and lower deck if always carrying vehicles. An excellent view of the river looking up towards Newbuildings and down towards the new bridge

The 2 tier bridge is very interesting. Having grown up in the city I crossed the bridge many times - often on foot. When you are walking it is a LOT longer than you think. It looks so well and is very interesting.

A rare sight now, a double decker bridge. A good sight to see and drive through but must be part of a city tour.
