The High Level Bridge, River Tyne

The High Level Bridge is a road and rail bridge linking Newcastle and Gateshead across the River Tyne. It was designed by Robert Stephenson; work started on 12 August 1847 and it was opened on 7 June 1849 and was the first road/rail bridge ever built. It is a Grade I listed structure.
The road carriageway and pedestrian walkways sit under the railway deck. The road crossing the bridge (B1307) is one-way (southbound) due to the narrowing of the carriageway during strengthening works in 2008.
The bridge is 408m long and 12m wide.
