This is the main thoroughfare for pedestrians and cyclists between the west side and the centre of Cambridge because it is the only bridge in this area which is public. The bridge is steep, supposedly to slow down cyclists, but because of the volume of traffic it is dangerous for all. It replaced an earlier bridge in order to allow vehicular access, although that is an unusual occurrence.
