SJ7002 : Coalport Bridge 1818

taken 9 years ago, near to Coalport, Telford And Wrekin, Great Britain

Coalport Bridge 1818
Coalport Bridge 1818
Built shortly after the more famous Ironbridge SJ6703 : Ironbridge. it uses a lot less metal. Too little, it turned out, for the three original ribs had to be supplemented by two more. They are twisted, though; see how the central rib starts off leaning to the left but is leaning right at the far abutment. The weight restriction is 3 tons, but it still makes me nervous to drive over it.
