I think this is the nicest bridge in Newcastle. We didnt realise how high up it was until we were walking over it. The millenium bridge seems small compared to this.

Its always quite special to see this bridge and has got a certain aura about it.....although not when stuck on one long traffic jam. Great architecture and it does have something special about it well worth seeing if you are a visitor.

With or without the fog, The Tyne bridge is a spectacular piece of architecture and was designed by the same bloke who created Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Just loved the look of it - superb workmanship. To think it fits right into this bustling city & people take many pictures of it - its stood the test of time.
