The Sheppey Crossing

The Sheppey Crossing is the bridge onto the island for road traffic.

Note the towers of the older Kingsferry Bridge, which carries the railway across. It is a rare vertical-lift bridge that carries both road and railway.

One of the others of this type in the UK is the Newport Bridge on Teesside.

I wrote about it in The Tees Bridges and Barrage in 2010.
