England - Humber Bridge 亨伯大橋


Stamp Issue : 1983-05-25 

Humber Bridge is the fifth-largest single-span suspension bridge in the world, near Kingston upon Hull in England. It spans the Humber between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, with a centre span of 1,410 meters and a total length of 2,220 meters, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
Plans for a bridge were originally drawn up in the 1930s, and were revised in 1955, but work did not begin until 26 July 1972. The bridge opened to traffic on 24 June 1981. It was opened officially by HM The Queen on 17 July 1981.
