The Foyle Bridge is a dual carriageway road bridge that carries the A515 over the River Foyle, that allows through traffic between Northern Ireland and Donegal to bypass Derry City Centre.

The bridge opened in 1984, and provided much needed relief for traffic, all of which could only cross the Foyle via the 1930s Craigavon Bridge. It has a span of 234m.

From 2003 - 2005, the bridge underwent a major refurbishment, in order to be better strengthened to cater for HGV traffic.
