Welcome to the website of The Rochester Bridge Trust.

Since Roman times a bridge has crossed the River Medway at Rochester, and since medieval times the Wardens and Assistants of Rochester Bridge have maintained this strategic river crossing.


Today the Trust owns and maintains the two A2 bridges and the service bridge at Rochester, crossings as important for today’s traffic and modern life as at any time in our history.

Our Education Website

The Trust is committed to Supporting Engineering Education and encouraging young people to learn more about civil engineering and bridge building. Visit our educational website for more information.


The Rochester Bridge Trust has built and maintained numerous Medway crossings since medieval times. In the late fourteenth century the old Roman bridge was destroyed by winter storms.
