Bridges On The Tyne


This bridge is part of the A69 by-pass allowing traffic to avoid the town of Haltwhistle on an alignment to the south. The bridge sweeps over the river on low arches and can be reached by footpaths on both banks, where the river is fairly wide. There is also a bridge adjoining it linking minor roads on either side of the river and providing a pedestrian footway. The bridge is the last of the Haltwhistle bridges and marks the point where the river turns to the south.
