The Detroit Bridge

The Detroit Bridge is a Salford Quays landmark.  The 80-metre long footbridge spans Dock 9 linking Harbour City and Metrolink to The Lowry and The Designer Outlet.  15 years ago the bridge was moved to its current location. It had originally been used as a railway swing bridge crossing the Manchester Ship Canal to the west of the Trafford Road swing bridge, as you can see in the aerial image below.
