History
Opened1966

The Queen Elizabeth Bridge is a road bridge just to the west of the town of Windsor, Berkshire, England.

The Elizabeth bridge carries the A332 Windsor By-pass across the River Thames, on the reach between Romney Lock and Boveney Lock. The bridge was completed in 1966, and has formed the principal road route between the adjacent towns of Windsor and Eton since 1970, when structural cracks in the central Windsor Bridge forced that bridge's closure to all but pedestrian traffic,
