(1) Station Road Railway Bridges

The original bridges were built in the 1840s to carry the new railway lines from Manchester to Crewe and Macclesfield. They crossed the main street of Cheadle Hulme which was originally very narrow and winding.

Even when the first influx of cars used this route regularly in the 1930s-1960s this central spot was very narrow.

Map1980s (N^)

The bridges were replaced and the road widened in the mid 1960s following a rail accident at the 'Cheadle Hulme bend' on May 28th 1964 in which 3 people were killed.
