About the bridge
The Humber Bridge is a suspension bridge with an overall length of 2220m spanning between Barton-upon-Humber and Hessle in the Yorkshire region of the UK. When it was opened to traffic in June 1981 it became the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world for 16 years (currently is the sixth).
