The Humber Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Humber Estuary in North Lincolnshire, England. It was built between 1972 and 1981 to replace an earlier railway bridge opened in 1879, which had been damaged by ice during the winter of 1946–47. The new structure was designed by Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Company and Sir William Halcrow & Partners with Ove Arup & Partners acting as consulting engineers for both design teams; it has a main span of 1,410 m (4,626 ft), making it at that time the longest single-span suspension bridge span in Europe. The current crossing has two lanes on either side of two railway tracks and is operated by Highways England who maintain its structures and major systems under a DBFO contract with Network Rail who are responsible for day-to-day maintenance including structural repairs such as painting road markings etc.
