A main route into Hexham, Northumberland, has re-opened this morning - following the completion of repair work the town's Railway Bridge.
Hexham Railway Bridge closed for six weeks on Monday June 6 to allow Network Rail to undertake essential maintenance work.
The closure meant the A6079 - the main route in and out of the town - was also closed for the duration of the works.
Northern Gas Networks also replaced a gas main and Northumberland County Council took advantage of the closure to carry out resurfacing work.
The re-opening of the bridge will come as a relief for many traders in Hexham, who feared that the temporary closure would hit business hard.
