The Caroni River is the largest in Trinidad and Tobago. It has historically been regarded as symbolising the separation between the people of the north and south of Trinidad.
The Silver Caroni Bridge, a single-lane metal bridge built in 1873, served well for many years but was inadequate for the demands of twentieth-century traffic.
In 1997 a temporary bridge was built alongside to provide a two-way traffic separation system, with the Silver Bridge serving as the southbound lane and the temporary bridge as the northbound lane. However, as the economy of Trinidad & Tobago continued to grow, a more permanent and efficient solution was required. The Ministry of Works & Transport turned to Mabey Bridge to provide that solution.
