The bridge crosses the A500 dual carriageway and the Trent and Mersey Canal. This is the point of the junction of the Newcastle canal.

The sign pinpoints the junction of the Newcastle Canal where it ran into the Trent & Mersey Canal near Glebe Street (just opposite the railway station).
Until the early 1970's there was a 100 yard stretch of navigable Newcastle Canal here which was used as moorings for Stoke Boat Club, this stretch was wiped out when the huge A500 by-pass was built.
On the far side of the Civic Centre is the Spode Factory and museum.
