Samlesbury Bridge
Samlesbury Bridge
This bridge carries the M6 over the River Ribble. It was opened in December 1958 as part of the first motorway in Britain. It was widened in 1995, and the bridge in the background was added. The latter bridge carries the Junction 31 southbound exit slip road and a local access road for the gravel pits on the north side of the river. See LinkExternal link.
