Cuerden footbridge, view west (see all photos of the same view)

The new Cuerden footbridge across the M6 is nearing completion, even though work has only been under way for a few months at this stage. Work on this bridge was accelerated so the bridge it replaces, across the M6 just to the north, could be demolished, making way for the new M6 interchange.
