Dunham Toll Bridge carries the A57 over the River Trent between the villages of Newton on Trent and Dunham on Trent, crossing the border between the counties of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

In the 1830s a group of Lincoln businessmen built the original cast iron bridge.

The superstructure of the bridge was re-built in steel to trunk road standards in 1975/76. However, as it still stands on the original piers and abutments, a fund is being set aside for its eventual reconstruction.

In 1994 a new toll plaza was constructed. The extra booth expanded the toll collection facility from two lanes to four and has reduced traffic queues considerably. Unfortunately, there is no extra space available for additional toll booths.

Free passage over the bridge is permitted on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. From 1st August 2013, in addition to free passage for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled tri cars, other tri cars and motorcyclists will also be permitted to cross free. There will also no longer be an additional charge for trailers in any category..
