Cumbria's Northside bridge opens

Contractor Birse Civils completed the £11.2M Northside bridge yesterday in Workington, just three years after the original structure collapsed in major flooding.

Construction of the new structure began in August 2011, replacing the old Northside Bridge which collapsed during floods in 20 November 2009.

The new 152m long three span structure spans the River Derwent. The concrete piers are clad in recovered sandstone from the original Northside Bridge.

Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal opened the bridge.
