Excellent spot! In the US, many of the large railroad bridges now have remotely-operated cameras monitoring both ends, which are hooked right into railroad security or dispatcher offices. This one appears to have a real person keeping an eye on the structure?

It has the same cameras around fenced territory which could you see on the photo.

Yes, you are right! But not only a real person there is an armed guard man with a big dog!

Well, that only makes sense, given the importance and cost of such structures. They really are quite essential to the strategic operations of the nation they serve. It's nice that you can get this close to the bridge without becoming the dog's lunch! 🙂
