River Tamar Bridge Shadows

Wednesday, 5th April 2006 by

Check out the awesome twin shadows of two bridges linking Devon and Cornwall over the River Tamar, England. The suspension bridge to the north is the Tamar Bridge which at the time of its opening was the longest suspension bridge in the UK. In 2001 it became:

the world's first suspension bridge to be widened using cantilevers, and the world's first bridge to undergo strengthening and widening work while remaining open to traffic.

Just to the south is the Royal Albert Bridge which was designed in 1855 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel no less!
