Foot and cycle crossing across the River Hull that maintains access for large and small boats and establishes a new flood defence level at the river’s edge

Scale Lane Bridge links the retail-saturated areas to the west of the River Hull, which have been expanding beyond the old city walls since the 18th century, and those to the east, contained by the expanse of the Humber, derelict and earmarked for regeneration.

The hydraulically powered bridge, which costs operator Hull City Council 50p a swing, pivots to open and can open with a full load of passengers.
