Roy Pegram cuts the (recycled) ribbon to declare the Tins Bridge officially open at last!
A small group of councillors (it is election time soon), council officers and cycling campaigners were among the group of onlookers.
The project engineer explained to me why the bridge didn't fit in the first place (see #29032). Apparently the measured angle was 41 degrees (between the crossing line and the centre line of Burnside) but the bridge was built with a 'skew angle' of 49 degrees.
The angle used to measure the length of the bridge was 41 degrees, but it was built with an angle of 49 - which made it too long. I don't know if it is a co-incidence that 49 + 41 = 90.

But it is lucky the error was that way round as otherwise the bridge would have been too short!
