Eddie Stobart first on new Workington bridge21 April 2010

The first vehicle to cross the temporary new Workington road-bridge in Cumbria today was an Eddie Stobart tractor and trailer unit.

The company won a charity auction in aid of the Workington Rotary Club, which has worked hard to support the flood victims, to be the first on the newly opened bridge.

This vehicle was loaded with goods for delivery to the local Tesco store.

Says William Stobart, Stobart Group chief operating officer: "We are proud to have played a small part in this fantastic project. Life on the road in West Cumbria should get a lot easier from now on, which comes as a relief to us all.
