Havengore Bridge is a lifting bridge that spans Havengore Creek.
It is a public right of way that allow shallow-drafted boats to access the Thames Estuary from the Roach and the Crouch.
Opened in 1988, the bridge provides the only vehicle crossing point to Foulness Island, which is a military facility run by Qinetic.
The island is used for the testing of new munitions and the destruction of old ones. When these tests are in progress, the bridge cannot be used.
The bridge is staffed for two hours either side of high water during daylight hours only, 365 days of the year.
