SD7108 : Bolton Arch, Newport Street

taken 7 years ago, near to Bolton, Great Britain

Bolton Arch, Newport Street
Bolton Arch, Newport Street
The outline of the town hall is just visible through the mist and gloom, looking through the arch on Newport Street.

The steel parabolic arch, which acts as a gateway to the town centre for those arriving at the nearby Trinity Street Railway Station, is actually the support for the railway bridge. The old bridge was closed in 2001 as it was judged to be too weak to carrying the amount of traffic using it. The new bridge opened in 2005.
