King George V Bridge is also known as (incorrectly) Keadby Bridge. It carries the A18 and the Doncaster-Scunthorpe railway over the River Trent. It carries two lanes of traffic and two railway lines. It is the last river crossing of the Trent before it reaches the Humber.

History

When the bridge was brought into use in 1916 it was the largest "Bascule" bridge in Europe. However since 1955 the bridge has been fixed shut.
