The Scale Lane Bridge is an innovative pedestrian swing bridge located in the city of Hull, England, that offers pedestrians the unique experience of riding on the bridge while it’s still moving. The bridge is shaped like a giant apostrophe sweeping across River Hill from west to east connecting Hull's Old Town to the undeveloped industrial land on the east bank. The vast concrete drum that sits on the west bank, while functioning as the counterweight and fulcrum also provides space for a restaurant, seating areas and a viewing platform. Opened in 2013, the bridge is designed to be the first stage of a wider masterplan that will unlock the potential of the riverside to promote wider regeneration and increase the use of the river frontage.
