Walking bascule bridge spanning the River Hull. 1928-31.
Designed by T Thomas, City Engineer. Built by Widnes Foundry
(1925) Ltd. Reinforced concrete with riveted steel lattice
girder lifting span, with cast-steel roller racks.
Wrought-iron latticework balustrades to footway on either
side. Windows are steel-framed casements. East side has
concrete control cabins and machine rooms spanning the road,
with flat concrete roofs and coped balustrades. In the centre,
a semicircular arch, flattened at the top, with an exaggerated
keyblock extending upwards to form a clock tower. On either
side, hinged covers to the racks, and beyond, a square control
cabin on the first floor, with 3 windows. Above and behind, a
room with 3 similar windows, flanked by sloping parapets.
Below, a tiled footway with shouldered openings, the north one
with 3 unglazed windows, the south one with 4 larger windows.
At the rear, a late C20 oriel window to the control cabin on
the south side. Exposed pinions projecting from the machine
rooms engage with straight racks to operate the bridge, which
is complete and in use.
