“Lots of money spent for no reason.”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Castleford is a fairly impoverished town and this bridge was unnecessary. It is flashy and makes a statement which wasn't required. The bridge wobbles when you walk over it - however if there was one plus for the hideous thing you can see various different wildlife around the bridge.

“seeing the river from different angle”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

pretty awsome standing above the river, have to watch out for the seating though as I was too occupied watching the river I kept nearly walking up the seating area as each seat has a slope either side. What an amazing feat of engineering and also with consultation of local Castleford residents.

“bridge”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

i think it was a waste of money, yes the design of the bridge is nice but surely the money spent to build it could have been spent in a better way
