The railway bridge was once part of the Antrim to Londonderry line and forms an important part of the heritage of the Borough, which has numerous train stations and a long standing railway network. The cast iron bridge which dates back to the Victorian era and would have been removed some time ago to make way for wheelchair accessible upgrading of bridges.
