Carrington Bridge is one of two road crossings of the River Severn and its flood plain in Worcestershire. It was constructed in 1985 as part of the Worcester Southern Bypass, the A4440. On the eastern side of the bridge is a roundabout with the A38, while a short distance to the west is a roundabout with the A449.

Due to the proximity to the roundabout, combined with the sheer volume of traffic on the S2 A4440, traffic can be found regularly at a standstill heading eastbound across the bridge.

In 2019, a project commenced to dual the A4440, which necessitated the building of a second bridge to the south of the original
