Description: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.
