Cambridge 2000: Cam: Riverside Bridge
The view southwest from the southeast side of the first
new (rather than replacement) bridge over the Cam
in Cambridge since the Elizabeth Way Bridge opened in 1971.
That was a combined vehicle, pedestrian and cycle bridge whereas
this is a pedestrian and cycle bridge, in keeping with the
current prevelant anti-car mentality of the city authorities.
Indeed, as can be seen in the photo, the bridge lands on this
side of the river smack in the middle of a road (Riverside),
which thus had to be closed to through traffic at this spot.
entrance on this side
is a long ramp with a relatively shallow gradient. The ramp on
the other side is even longer.
