The Severn Bridges Visitor Centre is now closed

The Severn Bridges Trust will continue to provide information via this website as a means of carrying out the Trust's objectives.  The Trust is in the final stages of expanding this website to a comprehensive one containing the information previously on display in the Centre and expanded to give full details of the construction of both bridges.

This website is a source for educational information on the Severn Bridges (including their history, information on traffic conditions, tolls and the local weather), bridges generally, engineering, designers, constructors, the local environment, engineering careers and much more.        

Construction of the Second Severn Crossing
A twelve minute DVD specially made for the Severn Bridges Trust from original film, by courtesy of John Laing Charitable Trust can be viewed via this link.  The film was sponsored by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation.  It takes you from early study, through major  construction to final opening by HRH Prince Charles.

The DVD is also available at a cost of only 6, including postage and packing, and is available through the Severn Bridges Trust.

Car parking is available at the location of the former Visitor Centre for those taking the spectacular walk along the estuary.  It is a very short distance from the public footpath and cycle route along the Binn Wall, which affords excellent views of the bridges.

Are you a Design and Technology teacher looking for inspiration on civil or structural engineering for school projects?  Are you a pupil wanting to learn about careers in engineering?
