“Worth a Look”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

A modern bridge across the busy river saves using the road bridge which is very busy for the people of Castleford. It really fits in with the surroundings worth a look if in the area.

“Bridge Engineer's view”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

The old masonry arches are an historic crossing of the river Calder. The bridge can be appreciated from the new footbridge.

“Castleford Bridge - worth going to see”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

I loved standing on the new bridge at Castleford. The force of the water off the weir was amazing. You could feel the power and the noise was tremendous. The town centre isn't too far away either, only a five minute walk away so you could make an afternoon of it.

“Nuisance”
Reviewed 7 October 2012 via mobile

Waste of money, makes traffic even worse due to people using the pedestrian crossing when there is another one fifty yards down the road near Lock Lane bridge. 2 lots of traffic lights which causes chaos.
