Gateshead Millenium Bridge
One of the Quayside’s main features is the pedestrian Gateshead Millennium Bridge, opened in 2001, which spans the river between the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Newcastle Law Courts. The Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian and cyclist tilt bridge.
The award-winning structure was conceived and designed by architect Wilkinson Eyre and structural engineer Gifford. It is sometimes referred to as the ‘Blinking Eye Bridge’ or the ‘Winking Eye Bridge’ due to its shape and its tilting method.
Tilt times for the bridge are displayed both on the bridge itself, and also on a page on the Gateshead Council website.
