Bridge at Mill Lane and Station Road, Northfield
Bridge at Mill Lane and Station Road, Northfield
When the original bridge under the Birmingham and Bristol railway was built this would have been a rural area and so it only had sufficient width to carry a single line of traffic. By the time the line was widened to four tracks clearly there was seen to be a need to widen the road and so the newer part of the bridge, in blue brick, was constructed accordingly. The arch of older part of the bridge however has never been rebuilt hence this unusual looking structure with traffic controlled by lights.
