Footbridge at Media City
Footbridge at Media City
This offset pivot swing bridge crosses the Manchester Ship Canal between the Imperial War Museum North and the BBC in Media City, to add interest it curves gently. The bridges that have been constructed in Salford Quays either lift or swing so that large boats can still get in. The construction site on the left is for a Granada Studios for ITV and Coronation Street.
