Swing low, sweet... bridge
Once they have rounded the breakwater, vessels wanting to enter the V&A Waterfront have to call V&A Bridge Control to request the opening of this Swing Bridge. For pedestrians in a hurry it can be a little disheartening to see the bridge being closed just before you reach it - kind of like a bad episode of The Amazing Race... Fortunately we're not often in a hurry when we visit the Waterfront, and besides, watching a ship gracefully entering the harbour quickly alleviates any irritation one may have been feeling over the imposed wait.
