Found this photo today on "Old girls of plant hire" facebook page so not my picture but worth posting here, looks like the new bridge being put in place ready for the tram lines

Never seen that one before.


Wilford Toll Bridge being 'converted' to take trams, with the Toll House just visible on the right. That's till there today and operates as a cafe.

Going into anorak mode, my previous post was not totally accurate. I thought the photo looked a bit too old for the tram conversion.


That photo is from the late 70s when the original central span was demolished for safety reasons, and a replacement section was installed. Then in the early 2000s that replacement was enlarged to accommodate trams.
