No longer bridging the gap

A1 improvement works June 15 (6)

This is the Chiltern Gardens footbridge across the A1 at Lobley Hill, Gateshead. Or at least it was. It was demolished on Friday evening and into the early hours of Saturday. I popped down to Lobley Hill on Friday to snap a few photos of the bridge before it went. It had to go to make way for the improvements to the A1 taking place on the section of the road from the south of the Team Valley to the Metro Centre.

The work is on schedule to be completed in 2016 (hopefully!)
