Combined railway- and other kinds of bridges

Are combined railway- and other kinds of bridges common in other countries?
In Sweden the remaining ones are countible on the fingers - though later
additioned bicycle lanes are present now and when the former industrial ditricts rebuilds to housing areas.

Are you talking parallel road and rail (or rail set into road) or double-deck bridges. There are certainly a couple of major examples of the latter in the UK (the High Level Bridge in Newcastle and the Britannia Bridge across Afon Menei in Wales spring to mind straight away.
Actually, Sweden has one of the biggest examples of such a bridge (IIRC) - isn't the Oresund crossing partially a road/rail bridge?

When the San Francisco Oakland Bay Brigde was opened, regular road traffic used the upper deck. The lower deck was split between bus and train. The last train ran in 1958.

The Whirlpool Bridge linking Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada to Niagara Falls, New York, USA is an international 2-level road/rail bridge.
It is not on the above list for some reason, but is described at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirlpool_Rapids_Bridge
The upper (single track rail) level is in need of repairs; the daily Maple Leaf passenger train (Amtrak #63 and #64) between Toronto Union and New York Penn Stations is the only train that uses the bridge.
The adjacent Michigan Central Bridge built as part of a direct link from Western New York to Michigan via Canada is now disused; it has a wall with barbed wire in the middle to prevent anyone from walking across.

The Connel Ferry Bridge in Scotland comes to mind.
And of course the most famous was the Bay Bridge between San Francisco and Oakland.

You are probably better off posting this on the uk.railway newsgroup for a comprehensive answer, but there is a picture in the Sept 2008 issue of Rail Express of the combined road/rail swing bridge that leads to Preston Docks. You can see it on Google Maps.

See also aus.rail, there is a similar discussion there (withthe same OP), but for some reason he didn't cross-post, he posted the messages seperately, so the discussions are seperate.
