Bridge 16 is a minor accommodation underbridge over a farm track, situated roughly midway between Arley and Victoria Bridge. Although the main bridges and tunnels on the original Severn Valley Railway were laid out to take double track, this bridge is only wide enough for single track.

The bridge is sometimes referred to as Hammerite Bridge[1], likely a reference to the popular brand of rust protecting paint. It is included on the Wyre Forest District Council Local Heritage List as item SVR043*.
