Location notes
Shaldon Bridge is a road bridge that crosses the River Teign just south of Teignmouth Station
Railway type and traffic
There is a regular service along this stretch of line including hourly local trains, hourly Great Western HSTs, half-hourly Voyagers and semi-fast workings by Wessex Trains, South West Trains and Arriva Trains Wales.
The road bridge is fairly busy with traffic but seems safe enough.
Road directions
From the A380 take the B3192 to Teignmouth. At the end of the road turn right on to the A381 Bitton Park Road. The bridge is a left turn shortly along this road at the traffic lights.

Photographic notes
Views can be had of north and south bound trains although the amount of traffic on the bridge makes it difficult to cross quickly. Due to the amount of traffic it is very noisy for videographers.
