Empty Bridge

By kaybee  
2nd in a series of 3 shots I am doing for a camera club challenge.

I wanted to get a shot looking straight up the bridge which is closed to all traffic except works vehicles at the moment while they do repairs.
Not hard - walk out ans stand in gap between the barriers.
WRONG! ......... you get jobsworths running out from the bridge authority building and shouting at you to get off the road. It is dangerous because it is a 'live' carraigeway with traffic using it ....apparently!

And of course you are far too stupid to be trusted to be able to make any kind of informed decision regarding your own welfare. It's become a joke in this country. I work in the construction industry and have to deal with these jobsworths every day. Was there anybody actually doing any "work" at the time??

Alan - it got worse ...... I was told I was not allowed to use the cycle section of the footway either. He must have been spitting blood watching the CCTV when I crossed the cycle way and climbed onto the railing to lean over and get a shot (I was going to climb over and go and get the shot but couldn't be arsed with the argument that would have resulted).
There was work going on - but only on one carraigeway .....the other one.
