The Queen Elizabeth Bridge carries the A332 – a dual-carriageway road built as the Windsor and Eton Relief Road in 1966 and officially named Royal Windsor Way in July 2012 – across the River Thames west of Windsor.

Its length was 461 feet with three spans, the central span being 175 feet. Width was 82 feet. The two supports on each shore are held in place by gigantic chains to prevent the central section collapsing. To obtain a pleasing appearance it was one of the first bridges to be designed by architects. Previously, bridges were designed by engineers and tended to be only functional in looks.
