Bridging the Lune JLP01_08_079743

TEBAY, EDEN, CUMBRIA. A view of the construction of the M6 Motorway through the Lune Gorge, showing the building of a bridge across the River Lune, probably the Roger Howe bridge which carries the A685 across the river.
The work on the Lune Gorge section of the M6 Motorway between Killington and Tebay (Junction 37 - Junction 38) was carried out by John Laing Construction Ltd. Work started in October 1967 and the motorway was opened to traffic in October 1970. On this stretch of the M6, 20 bridges and 17 culverts were built across rivers and streams. The Roger Howe bridge is located at the grid reference NY and carries the A685 across the River Lune. Continuing along this road is the Lawtland House viaduct which carries the A685 over the M6, see also JLP01/08/079762
