History of The Humber Bridge

humber bridge

The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, England, is a 2,220-metre (7,280 ft) single-span suspension bridge, a bridge anchored between two supports with no middle support. The history of the bridge is long, witch discussions for a crossing taking place one-hundred years before the bridge was built.

The bridge spans the Humber estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

Before the bridge opened, commuters would use the Humber Ferry to get from one bank to another, or drive on challenging roads south across the moors. The high accident rates lead to debates in Parliament where first a Humber tunnel, an idea thrown out due to excessive cost, and then a Humber Bridge was considered.
