Bank Quay transporter bridge, Warrington - Warrington (UA)

Former transporter bridge, opened in 1916. The bridge conveyed railway wagons and motor vehicles across the river Mersey from the former LNWR main line to Crosfield's works. The bridge no longer functions although the gondola remains intact. The structure is made of steel on brick plinths and is in poor condition. The Friends of Warrington Transporter Bridge have been working with the Local Authority to raise the profile of the bridge and provide interpretation. A long-term solution is needed to address the condition and maintenance of the bridge.
