|Opening Date||3 July 1933|
Twickenham Bridge crosses the River Thames in southwest London. It was built in 1933 as part of the newly-constructed "Chertsey Arterial Road", the bridge connects the Old Deer Park district of Richmond on the south bank of the river to its neighbouring district of St. Margarets on the north bank; both areas being within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Twickenham Bridge gets its name from the fact that it is on the road to the town of Twickenham (also in the same London borough), which is approximately 3km upstream from Twickenham Bridge, past Richmond Bridge.
The bridge forms part of today's A316 (Chertsey Road), which links Central and West London with the M3 motorway at Sunbury.
The bridge was declared a Grade II listed structure in 2008, providing protection to preserve its special character from unsympathetic development.
