A busy bridge especially when it's off work time. There are a few structures there which state that it came from different countries.

Visited on Thursday 22nd February. We walked across this bridge from Soutbank to Flinders Street Station. It has some interesting art work and wondered what it looked like lit up at night unfortunately we didn't get back to see it at night.
