German artist, Martin Heuwold, aka Megx, used colored panels to transform this bridge into a vibrant Lego brick overpass. The bridge is part of debunk train line that was converted in to bicycle and pedestrian path located in Wuppertal, Germany.
The bridge used to be a old train line, however it was recently converted into a pedestrian and cycle path. The project was sponsored by Akzenta and Klauser shoes. Also, people at Evolution industrial design worked on the planning stage for the bridge. This would be really cool to see in person!
