Highgate: Archway Bridge
Highgate: Archway Bridge
John Nash designed the original Archway bridge, a little way north of the current site, in 1812. The current cast iron bridge which replaced Nash's structure, was designed by Sir Alexander Binnie. Construction commenced in 1897, commemorated by the small grey plaque visible in the centre of the bridge, and the bridge was opened in 1900, carrying Hornsey Lane over the A1 Archway Road. The A1 is a dual carriageway here. Note the red route urban clearway red lines and the bus lanes. A route 134 bus trundles up the hill. This image was taken from the pavement in the bottom left hand corner of Danny's TQ2987 : Archway Road (2).
