This is simply a pedestrian bridge linking Grand Parade to Sullivan's Quay. Locals say it was built to make it easier for Revenue staff to cross that they could get to work easier in the mornings!!

This is a very nice tourist attraction. Go on Saturday and they have a farmer's market that is run by the nuns. Everything at the market is homemade and fresh.
