A multi-million-pound railway bridge replacement in Workington will soon benefit passengers and the local economy in Cumbria. The £4m Great North Rail Project investment will make Siddick bridge fit for the future. It provides key access for thousands of vehicles which transport 500,000 tonnes of cargo to and from the Port of Workington each year. Weight restrictions limiting the flow of traffic to just one-way are in place because of the bridges current state.
