     Queen Alexandra Bridge opened in 1909. Now road only, it originally also carried a railway on its upper deck. Built by Sir Wm Arrol & Co. of Glasgow, who had previously constructed the Forth Rail Bridge.

     Interesting to note that the present Wearmouth Bridge is still under construction. It was opened in 1929.

    Zoom in on the bridge in this image and you can see that the present day Wearmouth bridge is under construction. It was finally completed in 1929 and opened by the Duke of York on 31 October 1929. A very interesting photograph.

    The new (present) bridge was built while the old single-span iron arch bridge (opened 1796/rebuilt 1850s) was still in place and in use! You can see the arch of the old bridge and its huge stone abutment on the north side. The lattice girder above the arch had just been constructed - traffic was still running through it over the old bridge. It was used to support the steelwork of the new bridge as it was erected. It then 'held up' the old bridge as it in turn was dismantled. A truly amazing feat of engineering.

    Taken the year before the current Wearmouth Bridge was built and opened, in fact it looks like its under construction on the photograph.
