Broadgate Bridge No 3, a photo by lincoln_eye on Flickr.

Broadgate (the A15) travels North-South across this bridge. I posted a photo looking North along Broadgate on 10th July 2013.

Central Lincoln is on the other side of Broadgate with the Waterside Shopping Centre and Empowerment sculpture coming into view immediately.

Waterside House Pedestrian Bridge No 4

I've often wondered if this bridge has a local nickname, perhaps inspired by its elliptical shape (when viewed with its reflection). Couldn't find anything on the web about this.

Near Broadgate, Lincoln.
