Love you locks

15 Jul 2013

Love you locks Image

The worldwide phenomenon of locking padlocks onto bridges to signify the love between couples has made its way to Southbank.

There are early signs the footbridge between Flinders St Station and Southgate may become covered in the locks, with about 100 appearing last month.

The practice has been made popular in Europe on bridges in cities such Paris, Prague and Dublin.

The locks often have names and dates scribbled on them, with many couples believing it to be good luck for the future of their relationship. It is also seen as symbolically locking in love.

Or perhaps it’s just less of a commitment than tattoos?

Have you locked in your love on the bridge? Tell us about it on Twitter (@SOUTHBANK_News) or on our Facebook page.
