In the 1922 Road Lists, it was an unclassified road, as the bridge was still tolled at this time. After the tolls were removed on 20th June 1927, it became an important shortcut that merited Class I status. It remains the case to this day, as it is the easternmost toll-free crossing between the A36 and the Batheaston bypass, which causes lengthy delays.
