Crossings related to the A1

The Winthorpe Bridge crosses the River Trent on the A1 at Newark, Nottinghamshire.

The bridge is a Grade II* listed structure, listed on 29th May 1998. The listing entry reads as follows:

Road Bridge over river. 1964. A Goldstein, engineer of R Travers Morgan and Partners. Prestressed concrete bridge superstructure, reinforced concrete piers and abutments. Three span continuous structure: 130-260-13Oft. Nine small box girders cast in-situ on falsework. Outer faces formed with vertically fluted surface, fascia precast concrete units with exposed dark blue Shap granite aggregate. Abutment wing walls unusual, surfaces are tilted cylinders. The character of this well designed and detailed bridge appears to be transitional between 1950s and 1960s - having continuous box girders but a large number of small ones with no edge cantilever. Included as an architecturally exceptional example of an unusual type of bridge. (Modern British Bridges: Henry D: C R Books: 1965-).
