Photographer's Note

Third of bridges across River Tees in my TE gallery is the pedestrian Infinity Bridge. Funny thing, I have realized where its name comes from next day after coming back from this photo session. As mentioned before: North East England is a great place for bridge lovers, and I am going to provide some more evidences for it hopefully soon.

Infinity Bridge is a public pedestrian and cycle footbridge across the River Tees in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees. The bridge had the project title “North Shore Footbridge” before being given its official name “Infinity Bridge”, chosen by a panel made from the funding bodies, using names suggested by the public. The name derives from the infinity symbol formed by the bridge and its reflection. The footbridge was completed on time and to budget in December 2008 with 530 workers and uses in total some 450 tonnes of Corus steel, 1.5 km of locked coil steel cable, 780 lights, 5,472 bolts and weighs 1040 tons. The bridge was officially opened on 14 May 2009.
