The Scale Lane Bridge lets people ride along as it opens to let river vessels through.

Designed by architects McDowell + Benedetti, the Scale Lane Bridge in Kingston lets pedestrians ride along as it swings open to let boats pass on the River Hull.

The bridge, which is also referred to as the River Hull Footbridge, is designed in such a way that pedestrians and cyclists can get on and off the bridge on the west bank side while it opens and closes for boat traffic.

Although its completion has long been delayed, the Scale Lane Bridge has now become a landmark in Hull and is known as more than just a connection over a river. It has seating areas and even a viewing deck for people to enjoy the views and the occasional ride as the bridge moves.
