Tyneside 121022 4776

  • Description

    Newcastle, Gateshead and the Tyne Bridges, 12 November 2022. Lovely late afternoon November sunshine gives a warm feel to the High Level Bridge that links Newcastle with Gateshead. Engineered by Robert Stephenson and completed in 1849, it was the first combined road and rail bridge in the world, with the latter carried on the upper deck. The lower road deck is now only open to local buses and taxis, as well as pedestrians using footways on either side. At least partly visible beyond and further downstream are the 1876 Swing Bridge, the 1928 Tyne Bridge and the 2001 opened Millennium Bridge.
