The Anonymous Widower

Lincoln’s Tower Bridge

I took these pictures of the new bridge over the railway by one of Lincoln’s notorious level crossings.

Note.

  • The bridge may mean that pedestrians can get across easily when the level crossing is closed, but it doesn’t do anything for the vehicles.
  • One of the reasons for the height, is to clear the wires, if the line should be electrified.
  • This article in Rail Engineer describes how it was built.
  • Reportedly, the bridge is the first part of a £12million scheme, which includes a second bridge over another nearby level crossing.

It’s certainly a striking footbridge.
