Re: Absolutely no way would I walk across that

Only thing that would stop me using it would be the cost of using it, unless of course it was free.

Having said that the cost of a visa to China is over £100 so doubt I would be visiting just to cross a bridge.

I'm bad on heights so I was very proud of myself when I walked out on the glass floor up the Blackpool Tower.

That bridge looks overcrowded to me.

Re: Absolutely no way would I walk across that

I have walked on the glass floor at the CN tower at Toronto, same thing.

But I agree with @Oldjim I would pass on that bridge.

Likewise when I went to Sydney, you can climb on the Harbour Bridge. I gave that a miss. The bridge is huge, and it is not until you see it in real life you realise how much so from the usual photos you see of it.

Re: Absolutely no way would I walk across that

Like @Strat I have a problem with heights.

I managed the Empire State as that's an internal lift, pop outside, have a quick look around and back down.

I did have serious problems with The Queen Mary at Long Beach. That's an escalator goes up the outside and at the top is a gangway across to the boat's deck. This is where I froze unable to go forward or back. The Wife had to lead me across with my eyes closed.

@Alex Me too on the Sydney Harbour Bridge - I went and sat in a bar while the rest of the group climbed over it

Nah, don't you read! It's made of glass! Roll eyes Whatever, I'd not know whether to cross gingerly or run, but I'd avoid a cracking pace.Funny

I used to visit an office that had glass floors; always a little unnerving.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Absolutely no way would I walk across that

I would definitely walk over it but, preferably, when not so busy. Not because of any safety concerns but I think viewing the scenery would be better without a huge crowd surrounding you which looks a right paneTongue

 

I certainly wouldn't tell any jokes while crossing in case someone cracks upFunny

Let's hope it doesn't sway like the Millennium Bridge did in the early days.

@Luzern  Did you see the female employees below hitting their heads on the glass ceiling?

No, but I'm sure it'd have them floored. TBAH, I'd have preferred to be downstairs looking up, but can't remember why. Age, O cruel age.Cry

Good plan, I think that is exactly what I would do too. Smiley
