Very difficult to access from the Culmore side. The roundabout/junction is too confusing trying to access the bridge. It's a bit too high and the accidents there had been make me very nervous of using it. Apart from anything else it's too far from the city centre. Craigavon Bridge is easier to get onto, feels safer, is quicker to cross... More

Fairly high bridge over the Foyle River with fantastic sights of all surrounding areas. Always found it the best way to get into Derry rather than the main Craigavon bridge, better views and quicker access. You can feel the power of the wind whilst driving and it does be closed on days with extreme wind.

An opposing piece of design and some outstanding views as you go to and fro and one of the main routes to the City

Dual carriageway and it closes everytime the wind gets too strong. It is expensive to grit and is too far from the city centre . Bit of a white elephant.

A quick and easy way into the city instead of the main route. Best way in. Lovely views as you drive over.

A very good experience with our guide as she gave us more vision to some local history.Do not go to close to dark as it may not be as good.

I felt safer walking the bridge rather than driving it. You can take your time and pictures when you walk it. The views are special, even in November.
