Bridge proves to be a big hit

Musical Bridge

This bizarre bridge has hit the right note with motorists in southern China - after city officials painted huge piano keys all over it.

Locals say the flyover - in Shijiazhuang, Hebei province - has cheered up an eyesore and even cheers them up in traffic jams.

"It was just boring grey concrete before. Now it looks a bit artistic," said one.

A city spokesman said: "It doesn't need to cost a lot of money for government to make people happy."

"Maybe it will inspire people to become more musical too. We hope the décor will give people a spring in their step." he added.
