overbridge (plural overbridges)

  1. (Britain) A bridge that allows traffic to pass over a road, river, railway etc.

Usage notes[edit]

Where a bridge takes one form of transport over another it is both an overbridge and an underbridge, depending on the reference level. For example, where a road passes above a railway, the bridge is an overbridge from the point of view of the railway and an underbridge from the point of view of the road.
