12.11.65 accommodation arch
Railway viaduct. 1837-9 by John and Benjamin Green for Newcastle and North Shields
Railway Company; altered and width doubled 1869 for North-Eastern Railway Company.
Sandstone ashlar with iron arches and superstructure (added in 1869 when original
laminated timber arches were removed).
T-section iron lattices between arches and railway bed girders, which are also
supported by masonry. Sloped copings to buttressed piers and abutments. Ashlar skew
arch over Stepney Road. Historical note: one of the earliest bridges constructed in
Britain using the Wiebeking system of laminated wood; the present iron work closely
resembles the timber original.
