Shocking Moment Huge Bridge Collapses And Falls 60ft Next To A Busy Motorway

A car’s dashboard camera caught the shocking moment a huge bridge collapsed next to a busy motorway. Emergency services rushed to the scene next to the M60 Barton Bridge at around 8.30am on Monday. Miraculously, nobody was injured in the incident. The man who captured the incredible clip, as he was driving past, said it was surreal to watch it happen.

The driver, who wants to remain anonymous, said: “I was just driving towards it and it just collapsed. It was surreal to see it.”

But the North West Ambulance Service has confirmed nobody was injured and all contractors working on the site have been accounted for.

The lifting bridge is part of a £50m project to improve traffic flow around the area and includes new roundabout layouts at junctions 10 and 11 of the M60 motorway. Four huge pillars have been built as part of the construction, and were connected by the bridge which appears to have collapsed.


  1. Good to know that nobody was injured.

  2. Thank God nobody died
