Pillars of suspension bridges with observation decks

On the pillar of New Danube Bridge in Bratislava, Slovakia ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0001105 ) there is a restaurant, accessible for tourists by elevator. Is this the only observation deck on a pillar of a suspension bridge?

Tower Bridge in London, one of the first, if not the first. Tourists always think it's London Bridge!

Walter Taylor Bridge (Indooroopilly, Brisbane) - built 1936

From what I understand the towers at either end were designed to house the gatekeeper and maintenance workers. Up until a couple of years ago there was still somone living in it and maybe there still is.

This one in Valencia designed by Calatrava will reach 125 metres and will have an observation deck on its top being able to see the entire City of Arts and Sciencies.
