NY4624 : "I now declare the new Pooley Bridge open"

"I now declare the new Pooley Bridge open"
"I now declare the new Pooley Bridge open"
The bridge was opened to traffic fairly early in the morning of Friday, 23 October 2020. (It had been open to pedestrians for a few weeks.) Cumbria County Council (to whom I am grateful for images of the opening) had hoped for a more elaborate ceremony, but Covid-19 restrictions prevented that.

Somebody had done their homework, because the date selected for the opening was exactly 50 years after the Cumbrian stretch of the M6 (junctions 38 to 40) was opened.
