Reverse angle of the previous image.
If it seems odd that such a huge structure takes the main M6 motorway (the longest in England, which runs 230 miles from Rugby to the Scottish border just past Carlisle) over a tiny local cycle path, the reason is a combination of the fact that the Lune cycleway (Millennium Park) follows an old narrow-gauge railway line through a pre-existing cutting here, and the fact that the motorway crosses the River Lune some 50m to the left of this image; this is the approach to the main 70m span.
The bridge actually predates the motorway, having opened on 11 April, 1960 as part of the Lancaster bypass.
