My good deed for Sunday

This is a pic' for a freind of mine who was supposed to inform the passengers in her car that 'on your left and right you can now see The Severn Bridge'.

Here are some bonus facts!

This crossing is just over 5 km (3 miles) long and forms part of the European Strategic Route Network. The navigation clearance is 37 m (121 ft.). The main spans are cable-stayed.

Total length including approach spans: 5168 m (16955 ft.)
Main span: 456 m (1496 ft.)
Pylon height: 137 m (449 ft.)

Hee hee, I forgot bridges were your thing when I wrote my post late last night!!
Thanks, I will show her the pic. (I have no idea what she was looking for exactly!)
Did you visit the site when they were building it. I'm sure I stood where this photo was taken during that time.

Is that a veiled attempt to get me talking about my jugs?!!

You might just be a bigger geek than I am.

Doubtful. But just perhaps.


PS... writing this from my lovely new MacBook. Jealous?
