Bridging the Lune JLP01_08_083582

TEBAY, EDEN, CUMBRIA. A view of the construction of the M6 Motorway through the Lune Gorge, showing the Roger Howe bridge in the foreground, carrying the A685 over the River Lune, and the Lawtland House viaduct in the background, carrying the A685 over the motorway.
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. The structures in this photograph are located at grid references NY and NY to the south-east of Roundthwaite
