Northumbria University Footbridge


Location: Northumbria University Footbridge

The University Footbridge reunites two parts of the city divided by the Central Motorway. The two main sites, City Campus West and the spaceship like City Campus East face each other across a motorway linked by a futuristic £4 million footbridge.

Over the weekend of 5-7 May 2007, Northumbria University erected their landmark footbridge across the central motorway in Newcastle Upon Tyne. This is part of the £100m+ City Campus development. There is some timelapse footage from one of the universities webcams of the installation.
