Great Britain: Midland Road Bridge (1)

About 1000 ft downstream from the Victoria Bridge is the Midland Road Bridge. This single span through truss doesn't have any vertical members, just a series of X's. The cross-bracing and portal bracing are attached to the top flange of the top chord for a little extra vertical clearance.

The Midland Road Bridge has two vehicle lanes and sidewalks. It crosses the River Avon without any skew and it's about 175 ft long. I couldn't find any information about when this bridge was built or who designed it. I looked on the Internet, but all I discovered was that there was some confusion between this bridge and the nearby Midland Bridge Road Bridge, which is understandable.
