Hightown Road bridge over M2, Glengormley - Coppermine - 17195.jpg
Hightown Road bridge over M2, Glengormley

To allow the widening of the M2 to 3+2 to 3+3 lanes, the Hightown Road bridge is being rebuilt. The new bridge will also be 3 lanes wide to allow improvements to the local road above. The temporary footbridge is actually a thin sliver of the finished bridge. Taken from the truncated end of Hightown Road.

WHERE THE M22 DROPS A "2" - Coppermine - 10159.jpg
WHERE THE M22 DROPS A '2'

The M2 should have continued north from Dunsilly with the M22 as a branch heading west. That section of the M2 was never built (although an all-purpose dual carriageway was - eventually). The M22 is in the foreground and becomes the M2 at the end of the on-slip on the left. The wide central reservation was to allow the two motorways to merge. View to Belfast on 25 September 2006.

The M2 at Fortwilliam
The building of the foreshore section of the M2 between Whitla Street, Belfast and Greencastle was a major civil engineering project. It involved reclamation of a large part of Belfast Lough and the transport of more than 4 million tons of fill, by rail, from Magheramorne near Larne. Work started in 1966 with the road opening in 1973. This is the view north from the overbridge at Fortwilliam. The landscaping has taken well although it is hard to hide a motorway! Those with an interest in such things will note the additional hard shoulder on the inside. This section of road carries more than 90,000 vehicles each day.

(The Google map shows this bridge as going under rather than over the motorway).

Craigavon Bridge, Londonderry - Geograph - 335428.jpg
Craigavon Bridge, Londonderry
Londonderry once had four railway companies serving the City.

They are;
Standard gauge;
1:) Great Northern Railway of Ireland, (Foyle Road) Belfast to Londonderry via Portadown (West Bank)
2:) London Midland and Scottish Northern Counties Committee, (Waterside) Belfast to Londonderry via Antrim (East Bank)
Narrow Gauge
3:) Londonderry and Lough Swilly *Pennyburn)(West Bank)
4:) County Donegal Joint Railway Committee. (Victoria Road) (East Bank)

In order for the four railway companies to interchange goods wagons, the Craigavon Bridge was designed and built as a double deck bridge.

The lower deck had a turn-table at either end, and carried trackwork of mixed gauge, 5ft 3ins (Standard gauge), and 3ft 0ins (Narrow gauge).
The goods wagons would have been placed on the turn-table one at a time and hauled across the bridge by winch and chain.
After three out of the four railway companies ceased trading, the lower deck of the bridge was converted to carry road traffic to and from the East and West Banks of Londonderry.





Craigavon Bridge, Derry - Geograph - 746425.jpg
Craigavon Bridge, Derry
The Craigavon Bridge over the river Foyle in Derry.

Construction began in the late 1920s and was finished in 1933. The lower deck of the current bridge was originally a railway line, but this was replaced by a road in 1968. It was named after Lord Craigavon, a former Prime Minister of Northern Ireland.

This bridge replaced an earlier steel structure known as the Carlisle Bridge that was constructed in 1863. The earliest crossing over the Foyle near this point was a wooden bridge dating from around 1790.
