Sunday Bridges - Albert's R & R

Albert on holiday? Well sort of. The Albert Bridge built in the 1850's, a hybrid of a cable stayed and suspension, the bridge is closed for 18 months for a bit of a make over.
A grade II-listed (that means it's a bit important) it is in need of structural work to meet the demands of modern traffic. Even back in its original days it wasn't really strong enough for heavy traffic.
One of only two road bridges over the Thames that has never been replaced.
