Flintshire Bridge

December 22, 2013   

The Flintshire Bridge spans the Dee Estuary in North Wales. It can be seen from the A55.

It is a cable-stayed bridge, and it links Flint and Connah’s Quay. It cost £55 million to construct and it was opened in 1998 by Queen Elizabeth II. It carries part of the A548 road. It is the largest asymmetric cable-stayed bridge in Britain.
