Royal Tweed Bridge UXC01_01_01_0696_23

Royal Tweed Bridge, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland, 1955-1980. A view of the underside of the Royal Tweed Bridge, showing the four ribs supporting each arch. The Royal Tweed Bridge was constructed with reinforced concrete and dressed stone, between 1925 and 1928. The designers were L. G. Mouchel and Partners, and the contractors were Holloway Brothers, with assistance from consulting engineers Colonel C. H. Bressey and Mr J. H. Bean. The road bridge has four arches, three of which span the river, and the end two act as approaching viaducts. It is 430m long, and the span of the arches increases towards the north bank. Each arch is supported by four ribs and vertical columns that connect at the top by longtidudinal beams and transverse beams, which form the road. At the time of building, this bridge had the longest reinforced concrete arch in Britain
