      Craigavon ​​Bridge began to build in the late 20-ies of the last century, and completed the construction in 1933, but the prototype of a wooden bridge was built in 1862, and after a while, in view of the uncertainty of this construction, the city decided to build a more sturdy construction.

      The lower part of the bridge was originally built for the railroad tracks, where there were freight trains, but in 1968 it was converted into a highway. A pair of bronze statues, which form a sculpture called Hands Across the Divide, that literary translation means "Hands, build a bridge", located at the western end of the bridge. The author of the statue is an Irish sculptor Maurice Harron.
