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.

The Rochester Bridge Trust is looking for an Administrator who will support the administration of its varied events. Do you have exceptional attention to detail and strong administration experience? Would you like to support the organisation of formal dining, public lectures, exhibition launches and promotional events, networking, meetings, training, drinks receptions and other varied events? For details visit the Hiring People website.

The Rochester Bridge Trust has an opportunity for an undergraduate civil engineer who is looking for a year in industry as part of their studies. The Assistant Bridge Engineer would join the Bridge Team of in-house civil engineers in a full-time role between their second and third years of study, starting in September 2024. For more details visit the Hiring People website.


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.
