Swing Bridge (Tyne)
|Location Map ( geo)|
|Durham • Northumberland|
|Newcastle upon Tyne • Gateshead|
There has been a crossing here since Roman times. Since the classification of roads predates the opening of the Tyne Bridge, the Swing Bridge was originally a major road, and carried the original route of the A184, though it continued to be an important crossing for some years afterwards.
Today, however, the bridge is unclassified.
