Motorists crossing the Golden Gate Bridge will now hear a strange sound – the bridge ‘singing’ or ‘whistling’ as they cross.

The sound, which has been compared to a “giant, wheezing kazoo”, is the result of a redesign to the bridge’s bike path railings, which produce the sound when winds are high. You can’t miss it!

Naturally, there has been some push-back from the locals, but it doesn’t sound like there is much interest from community leaders to fix the issue.

While the ‘singing’ might be annoying to some, including me, the changes allow wind to flow more smoothly and safely over the bridge structure.
