Replacement bridge near Gisburn

If you're a regular traveller between Gisburn and Long Preston you'll have been cursing about the A682 being closed from late November for 2 weeks! This was to allow for the rail bridge at Newsholme to be replaced. This was the old bridge....

Both the line (only freight runs north of Clitheroe) and road have been running normally again since early December.

Thanks to Brian Eastham for the pictures : he's compiled a couple of short videos with a bit more detail about the whole 'exercise'
