Also referred as The shuttle car bridge as it carried heavily laden shuttle cars between industrial sites hence its heavy construction.

Unless it has been recently renovated, I do not believe it is passable for pedestrians.

I note that there is a good view of this bridge on BING that could also be linked to this record.

Ben, we are both right......there are actually three so called foot bridges....the one you are referring to is the new one, which i am in the process of adding, this one, which is the old footbridge, and then the "old old footbridge," which is our "mystery" bridge that we all have been sweating bullets and loosing sleep over.

I believe the pedestrian bridge is just southeast of where this one has been pinned at on the map. The current coordinates seem to be another pipe bridge.
