Sea wall on the left separates the river from the Manchester Ship Canal.
View with the tide out
A summer view
Virtually the same scene as previous slide in winter with snow and the shallower parts of the Ship Canal frozen over.
A late evening winter view.
Runcorn side under construction, 1959
Widnes side under construction, 1959
Widnes side in 1960. The arch grows and the transporter bridge "car" looks on apprehensively!
The span reaches out from Runcorn, and already some steelwork painting has started.
Note the cables supporting the arch. Later these will be used to support the roadway.
A view under the Runcorn end of the bridge. Note the large water tanks being
used to counter balance the bridge weight as it grows out over the river.
Getting close to the meeting point of the two arches.
A view under the completed bridge.
A view from a car, Note the dual carriageway at this time, pre-2017
A sunset view of the bridge.
A very bright late evening view viewed from a car crossing over, again pre-2017.
Following the opening of the MerseyGateway bridge in 2017, the Jubilee bridge was closed for some 3 years for repair
and major changes, including turning the bridge back to dual carriageway, adding a cycleway and removing the access road from the south at Runcorn,
which had been added in 1977.
Reopening day, Feb.2021, just before the barriers were removed.
