Wobbly facts - though structure just swivels

  • Comment

I'm sure I won't be the first to point out the error in your article on Gateshead Millennium Bridge - that's the one that swivels but doesn't wobble (AJ 23. 11. 00). It was built on the Tyne at Wallsend - that is literally the end of the wall (Roman), a World Heritage site more recently famous for shipbuilding (now declining) and for a boys club which produced famous footballers. Your piece gives the credit to Walsall, which would have been a difficult journey at any time but in four and a half hours. . . !

Still, at least you got the destination half right - it hopefully touched down in Gateshead and Newcastle simultaneously (but you did say Gateshead and not, say, Gravesend).
