This bridge over the Lancaster to Wennington direct line was built in 1960 to carry the Lancaster By-pass, later the M6 Motorway. The railway closed only six years later however and this view looks east towards Halton station along the trackbed cyclepath. The lorry is just about to cross the River Lune on the much more impressive motorway viaduct. Map Ref SD 495644.
