“It's a bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

Joins one side of the river to the other. Double deck structure, which may have been unique at the time. Probably has more history connected with the recent troubles than any great historical significance. Useful if you need to cross the river.

“Hope I havn't got them mixed up.”

Its a Double Decker, half expect Gene Hackman to come running along. Use the bottom no one else does. Both levels go both ways. Its quite an old bridge too.

“Never sure if people are serious about this!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

What can I say? It's a double deck bridge which facilitates the passage of pedestrians and vehicles from one side of the Foyle to the other. Where would be without it? Well, in a boat probably. It seems very nice. Oh, and it's free. And if you're on the bottom deck and your car is suitably equipped, it makes your headlights come on automatically. Sweet.
