    Default Bridge building

    I just received this video link from my son. He works for a company in London that produces one-off projects for architects and engineers. It is a time lapse documentation of the production of a new footbridge for one of the London parks. After construction it was moved across the country for hot dip galvanising. There are not many companies with a zinc tank big enough for a bridge.

    Great stuff. Watching the sun shadows move across the stage gives a lovely sense of time thru out the day.

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    I should have said that it is a swing bridge designed to be supported by a central pivot.
