The Gateshead Millennium Bridge or (Blinking Eye) is a pedestrian and cyclist tilt bridge spanning the River Tyne.
The Tyne runs between Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead.
The bridge weighs 850 tonnes, and was lifted into place in one piece by the Asian Hercules II, one of the world's largest floating cranes, on 20 November 2000.
It was opened to the public on 1st September 2001, and was dedicated by Queen Elizabeth II on 7 May 2002.
The bridge, which cost £22m to build, won the architects Wilkinson Eyre the 2002 Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and won Gifford the 2003 IStructE Supreme Award.
