The Humber Bridge is a single span suspension bridge crossing the River Humber at Kingston-Upon Hull. It was built between 1973 and 1981 and was granted grade I listed status in 2017.
The bridge was opened to traffic on 24 June 1981. The official opening was on 17 July 1981 by Queen Elizabeth II.
The suspension bridge had 3 spans: Hessle side (280m), Barton side (530m) and main centre span (1410m) making a total of 2,220m or 1.38 miles. It was the world’s longest single span suspension bridge when it opened and it held this record for 16 years. Cost was £90 million.
It has a D2 arrangement plus paths on either side that permit foot and cycles to cross since they are banned for the main carriageway. However in April 2021 these paths were closed due to high numbers of deaths. However a path is now open for a restricted period daily.
