Widnes and Runcorn Transporter Bridge AA98_05132 Featured Bridges Print

Widnes and Runcorn Transporter Bridge AA98_05132

The Widnes and Runcorn Transporter Bridge, Widnes, Halton, Cheshire. The transporter bridge was an unusual solution to moving vehicles across a busy shipping lane, in this case the River Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal. A travelling platform hung from overhead gantries allowed ships to pass underneath. Built in 1905 on the suspension principle with a span of 1,000 feet it was the largest bridge of this type ever. It was demolished after 1961 when a new high level road bridge was built. Photographed in the early 1950s by Eric de Mare
