A temporary bridge linking two sides of Workington, England, will be opened to traffic on 21 April.

The 350t, 67m-long span, two-way road bridge was built in 72 days, more than a month ahead of schedule.

The structure provides a direct road link over the river Derwent that will restore the road connection through the flood-torn UK town.

The construction work of the bridge cost £4.6m ($7m).

The road link has been built for Cumbria County Council by contractor Morgan Est.
