    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.

    Most people wait for the muse to turn up. That's terribly unreliable. I have to sit down and pursue the muse by attempting to work.

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