Deptford Creek Swing Bridge: lights and clearance gauge
Deptford Creek Swing Bridge: lights and clearance gauge
The red "traffic light" indicates to shipping that the swing bridge upstream is closed. The yellow depth gauge indicates clearance under the bridge: about 2.8m at high tide, increasing to over 7m at low tide (although by then there is not enough water for anything more than a kayak)
Deptford Creek Footbridge
A swing bridge across the mouth of the tidal Deptford Creek close to its confluence with the RIver Thames. It was built with section 106 money and opened on 19 January 2015, allowing users of the Thames path to cross the creek without having to divert inland and walk alongside the busy main road.

See also Deptford Creek Bridge for the older road bridge upstream.
