Big bridge; little people

I drive across this bridge every day on my way to work. I love to glance out and look across the water. It’s always different, just like the weather.

Today df was driving ... we were off to visit his son. At last I had an opportunity to take a photograph of the view that cheers me every morning!

You couldn’t drive a bit slowly so that I can get a good snap, could you?

I’ll try but it is a Motorway so I can’t stop now, can I?

True, I have to concede.

So I had to do the best I could ... window down ... camera at the ready ... here’s what I saw.

Looks like the view from a plane ... what a lot of little people doing their thing on the old bridge. That’s the bridge they want to knock down! Oh dear! What will become of all the fishermen, joggers, walkers, scenic view viewers, etc. if that happens?

It should be part of "reduce, re-use recycle" concept shouldn't it - once it outgrows the original purpose, it should be "re-used". Certainly not pulled down, what a shame!

Bridges take all the excitement out of crossing rivers.

Well, the jury is still out on this one megz_mum ... some local agitators are agitating to keep it... so hopefully they do keep it rosie.
