Originally built as a road and railway bridge, the demise of the railways lead to the bridge being converted to a two tier road bridge

My family and I have been using this bridge since I can remember. Its upper and lower deck if always carrying vehicles. An excellent view of the river looking up towards Newbuildings and down towards the new bridge
