The Kingsferry Bridge is a combined road and railway vertical-lift bridge connecting the Isle of Sheppey to Kent in South East England. It was designed by Mott, Hay and Anderson, and built by John Howard, with Dorman Long and Sir William Arrol & Co. It comprises a reinforced concrete and structural steel deck, supported from portal-shaped reinforced concrete towers.
The Kingsferry Bridge replaced the ferry. In October 1959, Kingsferry Bridge, a lifting bridge was installed, able to lift both the road and the railway line to allow ships to pass beneath.
