Swan Junction is a junction on the east side of Burton Bridge at Burton upon Trent.

The A511 (formerly A50) is the through route coming down Ashby Road onto the bridge. It meets A444 from Stapenhill to the south and B5008 coming from Repton to the north. It is controlled by traffic lights and there is no right turn from A511 Ashby Road onto B5008 Newton Road, traffic having to cross the bridge, go round the Three Queens gyratory and return back over the bridge to turn left onto Newton Road. Immediately to the right on Newton Road is the turning for Bearwood Hill Road into Winshill.

It is named after the former Swan Hotel there which is now Swan House, a private residence.
