Crossings related to the A31

Ringwood Through Route Bridge is two bridges forming a dual carriageway as the A31 crosses the River Avon close to Ringwood.

The original crossing was at West Street, by the Fish Inn. A single carriageway bypasses for this, and for Ringwood itself, was built in the 1930s. This structure now forms the westbound carriageway.

In 1969, to accompany the opening of the Bournemouth Spur Road, this road was upgraded again. A new, much wider, bridge was built to carry eastbound traffic. The alignment of the road suggests there was an aspiration to replace the 1930s westbound bridge too. That didn't happen, and today this bridge stands out for its relatively narrow width and poor alignment.
