Cycleway on the Queen Alexandra Bridge

  • Description

    "Cycleway on the Queen Alexandra Bridge The Queen Alexandra Bridge over the River Wear was built in 1909 and was originally a double-decker bridge with a railway on the top (long since discontinued and dismantled - the arches leading to the rail deck can be seen curving to the left in the distance). The bridge is a Grade II listed structure and its lattice girder construction is the heaviest ever built. Cycle- and foot-ways span the river on the outside of the girders."
