London Tower Bridge

Many people think that Tower Bridge is called London Bridge when in fact they are two different bridges. A competition was launched to find a design that would not only carry vehicles and pedestrians but also allow tall ships to pass. The winning design, from fifty submitted, was by Sir Horace Jones, the City Architect, it took more than four hundred workers and over seventy thousand tons of concrete poured into the river Thames bed to support it. Construction started 1886 and took eight years to build, it now spans the River Thames connecting the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets on the northern side and Southwark to the south. River traffic takes priority over the forty thousand daily bridge users and the bridge is raised over one thousand times a year.
