Crew Junction

A temporary bridge carries the Coltbridge Junction-Leith North goods line across Ferry Road at Crewe Toll prior to the installation of a 'permanent' new girder bridge being swung into position. This view was taken in spring 1966, and just over a year later the line closed completely! The bridge however survived for many more years until it was eventually replaced by a new cycle path bridge (presumably providing higher clearances for buses and lorries). See image 29633
