Footbridge over the M1 Motorway, Tankersley
This single span footbridge, over the M1 Motorway at Tankersley, and close to Junction 36, is known locally as the 'Tank Top Bridge' which was the winning name in a competition amongst local schoolchildren.

It replaced an earlier footbridge (which was demolished) and was opened in December 2005, once again linking the two sides of Tankersley, including the school and schoolchildren (hurrah!) which were divided by the opening of the M1 Motorway.

Due to its location close to Junction 36 it crosses two slip roads as well as the actual Motorway, making it longer than normal.

The bridge is used by Horses as well as walkers and cyclists, and they have priority. Well, would you argue with one!
