You can see this impressive piece of industrial engineering from parts of main town - it's that big. I followed the satnav and it took us over the new bridge to the far side - I think there's a visitor centre on the near bank?...More

If in the area worth a look. Even under renovation. Always amazed me building such a structure rather a full bridge. How much more engineering and cost is required.

Looks interesting but looks like it in under renovation or something. Nice area but based on other comments, seems like it is rarely open. If it was it might be good?More

This was fun to see. Unfortunately the museum was closed. I had a hard time to convince my friends that there is another bridge like this in Spail
