There are three bridges in Derry, and the Craigavon Bridge is furthest south. It connects the Bogside, with the Waterside. The other two are, the newly opened Peace Bridge, and the Foyle Bridge. The Blue bridge is the only double-decker in Ireland, and it was built in the '20's. it is named after Lord Craigavon, the first prime Minister of Northern Ireland, and it spans the River Foyle.
The Lower deck used to be just for trains, but that ceased in the '60's. At one end, you have the "Hands Across the Divide" sculpture, and at the other end, you have the train station. It is a massive structure, and every time I cross it, on the lower deck, it reminds me of the "Brooklyn Bridge", in New York, only on a smaller scale. It is also open to pedestrians, but only on the upper deck. If you want to visit, park the car in the Train Station car park, which is free, and stroll across it on foot. Give yourself about an hour, to take it all in.
