The nearer bridge is barely wide enough for a modern car, and drivers have to wait for oncoming traffic to clear the bridge before proceeding. It opened as a toll bridge in 1911, reusing ironwork from the 1864 rail bridge in Lancaster, which had carried the Green Ayre-Morecambe railway across the Lune.
The further bridge is somewhat larger, carrying the M6 motorway, the main route from London to Scotland via NW England, with corresponding volumes of traffic.
