Which word is correct?

The children's school is on the other side of the river. After school they always walk (down / up / along) the suspension bridge back to their home.

Thanks!

    across.  perhaps over.  down/up/along are not what I would expect.  There is no essential idea of either up or down involved (there is no going up or down while on the bridge, or at least not on a typical or normal bridge), and along is contrary to the idea of crossing over.  Along implies some sort of parallel line.  No bridge runs parallel to what it crosses, or it would not ever cross it.

    From your choices the best is,"along". But the way I would say it is "across the suspension bridge". Since there crossing the bridge "over", is also used.

    Along would be the correct word.

    The children's school is located on the other side of the river.  On their way home after school they always walk,  taking the suspension bridge route.

    From the choices 'along' is fine.

    A better word would be 'across' or 'over'. You *could* say 'along' but it would not be natural in English.
