The Bridge over the Conon on the A835

The A835 crosses the River Conon just above the point where the river flows into the Cromarty Firth, near the town of Conon Bridge. The road between Tore Roundabout and Contin was built in the early 1980s to replace the A832 as the main route north to Ullapool and Wester Ross, and the project included this bridge as part of the Conon Bridge bypass.

The bridge is of concrete construction and crosses the river in three spans, the two intermediate piers standing in the river bed. To either side of the river, the road is embanked through the fields, partly as a flood prevention measure, but also to ease the gradient on the long hill to the south in particular. The carriageway forms the northern part of a long straight and is a Wide S2, with pavements on both sides and the metal railings typical of the era in place of parapets.
