Bridge

The Salford Quays lift bridge or Salford Quays Millennium footbridge is a 95-metre long vertical lift bridge spanning the Manchester Ship Canal in Salford, Greater Manchester, England. The bridge, which was completed in 2000, is near the terminus of the ship canal at the old Manchester Docks. It links Salford Quays to MediaCityUK and has a lift of 18 metres, allowing large watercraft to pass beneath. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salford_Quays_lift_bridge)

 

(None of the above is true; it was put there solely for the purpose of attracting photographers - I was surprised there wasn't a queue when I took this!)
