Built in 1933 it replaced the former Carlisle Bridge which was preceded by a wooden bridge that had been built across the Foyle at the bottom of Bridge Street, in 1791 by two Boston engineers - Cox and Thompson. The two recent bridges were both double-decked bridges. The Carlisle Bridge was built in 1863. The lower deck of the Craigavon Bridge was converted from a railway bridge to a road bridge in 1967.
