Blue bridge blues

This is not the only blue bridge in York, as we have seen here. This more angular construction is a hand-cranked lifting bridge which allows traffic to pass from the Ouse to the Foss and vice-versa . Flooding prevented a close-up, but go to the Jolly Green P to see something like a normal water level.

  1. Ooo. Cool. Do you think the bright blue serves a function, like higher visibility? Or just a quirky choice? Either way it I'm sure it causes smiles.
