Kingsway bridge, Didsbury
Kingsway bridge, Didsbury
This crossing of the Mersey was opened in 1959. The Cheadle Road bridge (in the same square) was until then the only crossing point between Stockport and Northenden, and was infamous for many postwar years for the "Cheadle Crawl" - an every day rush-hour traffic jam which had delayed motorists commuting into Manchester (and going home).
