Rail Bridge - Rideau River

A cyclist passes a jogger on the rail bridge crossing the Rideau River. The railway used to follow the northern side of the Rideau Canal through to Union Station, within site of Parliament Hill. The National Capital Commission unwisely decided to relocate the passenger station 3km east in 1966, removing rail service from the city center.

It looks like a short, wide bridge from this angle, but from above it looks both straighter and longer.
