Mimico Creek, Calatrava Bridge - 1997. View on CN tower - if it was not this foggy........;-)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Mimico Creek Bridge, similar to the La Devesa Bridge (Ripoll, Spain), made with a single inclined arch, designed by Santiago Calatrava.

The arc on the bridge seems to be unnecessary, especially over the short span (44 m), but it adds strength & stability in addition to visual effect.


The only caveat I have is about the materials used. A bridge should not be rusting. Quality stainless steel is a minimum requirement for exposed parts.

I guess they tried to save 5 cents, but it will cost a $1 to fix it.


Here is another view of the bridge from my gallery.


CN Tower is almost a symbol of Toronto and is usually visible from everywhere! Not this time....;-)

Nice image Tomas.I agree according the material but we should probably blame the committee who approved the project.

Reputable company never compromises on material.

In engineering, the designer picks the material number. I did it for 35 years and was never forced to use inferior quality.
