The Haydon Bridge Viaduct carries the A69 road across both the Newcastle upon Tyne to Carlisle railway and the River South Tyne half a mile West of Haydon Bridge.

History[edit]

Construction, which was undertaken by CVC Highway Solutions (a joint venture between Volker Stevin and Hanson Contracting (formerly Cumbrian Industrials) and their design partner Capita Symonds),[1] started in January 2007 and the bridge opened on 25 March 2009.[2]
