Shoppers get chance to see bridge swing

Shoppers get chance to see bridge swing

Christmas shoppers in Bridgetown were yesterday afternoon treated to the rare sight of the Chamberlain Bridge swinging upwards to let out a sailing vessel as crew members prepared to depart the Careenage on a Caribbean voyage.

Amused and amazed shoppers and visitors to the island, some of whom were halted in their attempt to cross the bridge, began snapping shots of the spectacle with their smart phones and other cameras.

Tourists and other Christmas shoppers were halted in their attempt to cross the bridge as it swung upwards to let out a tall ship.

    Doubtful… Looks like a typical “Yachtie” cruiser to me.

    Lord, I thought it had seized up from never being used. God knows why they build the thing and don’t even bother to use it even if its just used as an attraction for people to see. Things like that just beat me.
