Hump bridge ahead
Hump bridge ahead
This is the road south from Comberton to the A603. The hump bridge once crossed the Bedford to Cambridge railway, the eastern section of the Oxford to Cambridge Varsity Line. Built in the 1860s for the horse drawn traffic of the period these bridges were weak by modern standards. Several have been removed while others, like this one, have been strengthened in recent years.

Bob Jones's TL3854 : Disused railway south of Comberton (2007) shows the original condition of the bridge, my TL3854 : Bridge repairs at Comberton Road and TL3854 : Bridge strengthening at Comberton Road work in progress in 2014 and Robin Webster's TL3854 : Comberton Road bridge over old railway (2015) the bridge as it now is.
