Rotating Bridge of England

Here is the amazing bridge in England called Gateshead Millennium Bridge which is famous for its shape and the tilting capability. This circular bridge is rotated by using hydraulic rams 3 on each side which is operated by electric motor to rotate the bridge using the large bearings.

This amazing bridge takes about four and a half minutes to rotate upward or to lower down. The unique appearance of this bridge just resembles during the manoeuvre and has been known as the Winking Eye Bridge as it starts sliding upward to make a way to pass the small ships and boats and is then lowered down for pedestrians to walk over the bridge to cross the River Tyne and cyclist tilt spanning the river.
