Nene Viaduct, Peterborough
The Nene Viaduct spans the River Nene just south of Peterborough station. It was built by Sir William Cubitt (17851861) and his son Joseph Cubitt (1811-1872) for the Great Northern Railway (GNR) and was completed in 1849. A Grade II listed structure, it is the last remaining cast iron bridge on a British main railway line. The steel bridge behind the viaduct was constructed in 1924 when the East Coast Main Line (ECML) was doubled to four tracks.
