Barford Bypass Bridge is a road where the A429 crosses the River Avon near Barford. This road runs from Chippenham to Coventry.

It is a 120m four span beam and concrete deck bridge, fabricated and erected by Rowecord Engineering. It consisted of 350 tonnes of steel, with girders sitting on reinforced concrete supports across the river and floodplain to the north-west of the village. The adjacent banks were totally sodden and so temporary hardstanding was put down to support the plant equipment for the piling operation.

An 800 tonne crawler crane was used to lift the main span since this type spread the load better than a telescopic crane with outriggers.
