SD5410 : The Bridge to Nowhere

taken 13 years ago, near to Shevington Moor, Wigan, Great Britain

The Bridge to Nowhere
The Bridge to Nowhere
If you head towards Wigan from the M6 Jn27, you can see the original plan was to build a nice new road to bypass sleepy Standish. They even built a bridge to carry the A5209 over this new highway, which no-one seemed keen to pay for. The result is known locally as the "Bridge to Nowhere", but should more accurately be known as the bridge over nothing!
