    Lightbulb Footbridge across the Mersey?

    Just a thought I had recently whilst visiting Birkenhead. I understand that there are many factors that would influence such a project but I wouldn't rule it out completely. I believe it would greatly enhance the status of Wirral as a place to visit and would make getting there so much easier. I also believe it would make Wirral feel more like part of the Liverpool City Region.
    Ofcourse it would have to be high so smaller ships could pass beneath and have some sort of draw bridge for larger vessels but I think this could be done. I would like your views

    Never mind a pedestrian bridge. Let's have a tramway!

    This would look nice over the Mersey, and what a view the passengers would have;

    This does not want to cooperate. Sorry about that, but I shall try for another Translink site.

    Let's see if this one works;

    No luck here, either. I give up!

    What I wanted to show was the Skytrain Bridge linking Surrey, B.C. with New Westminster, part of the light rapid transit network around Vancouver. Maybe our LRT specialist WW can find it.
