Three Bridges is a crossing of bridges near Hanwell in west London, United Kingdom.[1] Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the bridges are a clever arrangement allowing the routes of the Grand Junction Canal, Great Western and Brentford Railway, and Windmill Lane to cross each other - road above canal above railway.[2][3] Work began in 1856, and was completed in 1859.[3] The project was Brunel's last before he died on 15 September 1859, just two months after its completion.

The structure is a scheduled monument.
