Commemorate someone special in 2002

New bridge under construction

Do something to remember the coming of the 2002 Commonwealth Games. A new bridge that will take people to the City of Manchester Stadium needs a name and BBC2002 need your help to name it. The winner will get to go to the naming ceremony and their choice will live on as the name of the new bridge!

Construction of the new bridge - designed specifically to incorporate a wide pedestrian and cycle footpath as well as providing a key route for the Metrolink extension through the area - is ahead of schedule and will be complete in time to provide the vital pedestrian route for the Commonwealth Games due to take place in July 2002.

Installation of the new bridge represents around 14 million worth of investment that is being funded jointly by GMPTE, English Partnerships, Northwest Development Agency and Manchester City Council.

The works are part of the 30 million worth of investment that has been secured for the Ashton Canal Corridor by New East Manchester Ltd.

So send in your suggestions. You could use the name of a person who has done a lot to help your community or a name from the past, it's up to you!

Email your entries to 2002@bbc.co.uk before the end of April 2002.
