Humber Bridge Plans To Become First Musical Road In UK Which Will Play Songs As Cars Drive Over It

The sound of rumbling of tyres on busy British roads is nothing new but UK motorists will soon hear music they have created as they drive over a northern bridge.

For the first time in the UK, drivers will be able to play music outside their cars as new musical strips are being added to Humber Bridge.

Car-activated rumble strips will play a tune when the 120,000 cars drive over the Grade I listed bridge near Hull each week.

It’s an attempt to transform the notorious infrastructure into a tourist attraction - the bridge’s board hopes it will bring in an extra 400,000 visitors a year.

Although the council is yet to pick the winning melody, the strips could be ready and installed on the crossing over the river Humber by 2022.

The bridge is claiming a UK first in creating a musical roads, but they have been toyed with before - a road in Lancaster, California attempted a similar feat in 2017 and failed.

The grooves installed in the US were specifically designed to play Rossini’s William Tell Overture when a cars drove over them.

However when they were added to the road, they were spaced too closely together and created a jingle that was terribly out of tune.
