Boothferry Bridge is a crossing of the River Ouse, and was opened in 1929, replacing the old ferry service. The box girder bridge is also a swing bridge and often opens to allow shipping to pass through on its way to Selby. Prior to the building of the M62 motorway and the Ouse bridge, it was the only point at which to cross the river without a long trip to Selby. This bridge carried most of the traffic travelling south from the port of Hull. Southbound traffic can also use the Humber Bridge, making this crossing a lot quieter than it was in the past.
