New bridge constructed to take a dual carriageway over a cycle path.

This huge bridge replaced a very large road junction which was in this position previously. Drivers can no longer leave the dual carriageway at this point and follow what was the direct route to the centre of the city.

The direct route has now been made into a "bicycle road" which you can see in picture #13318.

The bridge was constructed for cyclists as the alternative would be to send the cycle path through a tunnel which was be less appealing. Because this route serves cyclists coming in from the outskirts who might otherwise be tempted to drive, it was thought that the major expense of building this bridge was justified.

Cyclists now have a much more direct route than drives. They can also reach the centre of the city from the outskirts and meet no traffic lights at all on the way.

The equivalent driving route involves several sets of lights and is longer.
