Old Railway bridge over the M50
Old Railway bridge over the M50
Taken from the road bridge.
The M50 was opened from Brockeridge Common to Ross-on-Wye in November 1960.
The railway line was closed to passengers on 14th August 1961 but goods continued to use the line until 1st July 1963, so this expensive bridge was used for less than three years.
