John Powell reports that this modern steel swing bridge was built in 1995 at a project cost of 344,000and is typical of BW's standard swing bridge construction comprising a power operated single balanced leaf, half through main girders with longitudinal aluminium plank decking. the standard control system has been incorporated with power wedging, power slewing and fully automatic wig-wag road signals and power operated drop arm barriers fitted with flexible skirts. The bridge works and mechanical & electrical equipment was designed in-house by the BW Bridge Office.

The bridge is interlinked with the nearby British Rail Leel Crossing.
