It is my pleasure to present you another amazing and unique bridge from UK.
Rolling Bridge, London , UK
Thomas Heatherwick's award-winning rolling bridge is an ingenious addition to the grand union canal system in London and is unique. Unlike regular movable canal bridges, the rolling bridge curls up to form an octagon by way of hydraulic jacks to let ships pass. It is twelve meters long and opens every Friday at noon.
Rather than a conventional opening bridge mechanism, consisting of a single rigid element that lifts to let boats pass, the Rolling Bridge gets out of the way by curling up until its two ends touch.
This bridge taught me to be flexible and mobile. To live long and strong, one has to be flexible and adaptable to any given situation. It is very true especially in today's competitive world, where everyone needs to be flexible and adaptable to the rapid changing marketing environment so as to survive in the market. Similarly, if the above rolling bridge does not have such flexibilities, it may not be able to keep its original design till to-date.

Thanks for your time again and hope to see you again for another amazing bridge.
Look forward to seeing you again and again,
