TRAVEL GAZETTE -TOURISTS could soon visit the top of the iconic Humber Bridge – and enjoy amazing views of both sides of the river, reports the Grimsby Evening Telegraph.
The paper reports that the Humber Bridge Board has submitted a planning notice to East Riding Council outlining details of the proposed new visitor attraction for the iconic landmark.
It includes a glass elevator and viewing platform designed to take tourists to the top of the bridge’s north tower, as well as a new visitor centre and hotel in the viewing area car parks off Ferriby Road, Hessle.
The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, England, is a 2,220-metre (7,280 ft) single-span suspension bridge, which opened to traffic on 24 June 1981. It was the longest of its type in the world when opened, and is now the seventh-longest.
