The Millenium Bridge


The Millenium Bridge was built in 2000 to increase tourism and accessibility. The bridge is used to enable foot passengers and cyclists to get from Newcastle to Gateshead, and lifts so that boats can get through on the River Tyne. It moves at the same times everyday to allow boats under. It was designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre and structural engineers Gifford.
