type in the world when opened, and is now the seventh-longest.
Before the bridge opening, commuters would go from one bank to the other either by using the ferry that ran between Hull and New Holland, Lincolnshire or by driving via the M62, M18 and M180 motorways, crossing the River Ouse near Goole.
