Newhaven Swing Bridge crosses the River Ouse on the A259 immediately above Newhaven Harbour. It is the nearest bridge to the sea.

It opened on 7th November 1974, and replaced an older bridge slightly to the south of the current location.

As its name indicates, it is a swing bridge that can open to let larger vessels through.
