I've been planning for ages to walk over the bridge one day, today I braved my fear of heights to do it - at least halfway!

The road bridge is more than half a kilometre long and 34 metres high - seems higher! There is a pedestrian bridge underneath. (I took this picture last week from down on the river bank. I'm talking about the high bridge, not the little low one.)

I parked as close as I could get and walked along the main road until I got to the entrance, which looked a bit gloomy:

But it quickly opened out to the light:

I was having some issues. My foot has been better lately but it was still hurting, I don't like feeling so isolated - I only saw three other people the whole time - and trucks passing overhead were making everything shake. It felt very high up. I decided at that point I only had to go halfway, to a little viewing point.

I didn't get too close to the rail - it was scary!
Then I walked back. It took 30 minutes altogether, only half of which was actually on the bridge, a good walk for me at the moment. I can't say that I really enjoyed it, but I suppose I accomplished something!


  1. It looks like such a beautiful area; gorgeous view. You should be proud because that is certainly an accomplishment!

    1. We do live in a lovely area! Very much on the outskirts of the city.
