On a wander I came across this bridge in Wallsend Burn. It is now shut to traffic but is still open for the public to cross for now although for it is only a matter of time according to this article in the Evening Chronicle icNewcastle - Bridge is to come down. I took a few photos as I was amazed that the bridge was still able to be crossed even on foot as it looks very unstable.
February 2007: A story from The Journal .
Bidding will start shortly for a new £4.2m bridge to replace the existing 100-year-old Burn Close bridge across Wallsend Dene, North Tyneside.
It is anticipated that the bridge, which is currently only able to carry pedestrian and cyclist traffic, will be demolished in April next year and that the new one will be completed by March the following year.
Options are currently being considered to minimise disruption to pedestrians and cyclists while the new bridge is being built. This includes possible installation of new foot and cycle paths with lighting, temporary staircases and a dedicated early working morning and evening free shuttle bus service.
