Follow the yellow bridge road

A cheerful yellow bridge crossing the #Toronto railway tracks leads to the growing number of condos along the Gardiner Expressway and Railway Lands. Designed by sculptor Francisco Gazitua of Chile and  structural engineer Peter Sheffield the pedestrian bridge is named 'Puente de Luz' which means bridge of light. I like the colour more than the shape of the crossing, it breaks up the walls of grey concrete.
The side entrances to the steel bridge head westward on both sides, a long ramp to get to the 125m span between Spadina & Bathurst streets and bridging Front & the new roads north of Fort York Blvd.

and west towards the Bathurst Street bridge
