Station Road, Runcorn, Cheshire.
The bridge was built immediately east of two sets of locks, the highest of two flights of ten locks which led down to the River Mersey (latterly to the Manchester Ship Canal). The top locks were destroyed in 1960 to build the approach road to the Silver Jubilee Bridge. There are hopes that when the new Mersey Gateway Bridge is opened, and the Silver Jubilee Bridge is updated, the original lock flight will be restored. See here for more information, including a sketch map of the canal layout in this area.
