Crossings related to the A81

The A81 crosses the Allander Water at an apparently unnamed bridge to the east of Milngavie. The bridge is almost impossible to see, even from the Allander Walkway, thanks to thick undergrowth. However, it appears to be an Iron girder bridge crossing the river in two spans, with a stone central pier. The western parapet seems to be the original stone structure, but the eastern parapet has been re-built in concrete blocks. This may have been part of junction improvement works, to widen the turning into the A807, or it may have been due to an accident or collapse.


The junction

Immediately to the north of the bridge is the junction between the A81 and A807, which is controlled by traffic signals. The A807 heads east, roughly following the Allander Water to Allander Toll, but still doesn't afford any better view of the bridge! This particular section uses an ancient trackway along the Allander Water's bank.
