The Garry Bridges on the A9 make up the Blair Atholl and Bruar bypass opened in 1984 and was one of the last sections to be built.

The Southern bridge

The southern bridge crosses the road (B8079), the Railway Line, the River Garry and an access road on the western side of the river. The bridge is a lattice girder construction with 3 big chunky towers holding it up. The future plans for this bridge on the A9 dualling have shown that it will be replaced by a D2 structure for the new road.

The Northern Bridge

The Northern Bridge crosses just the river and is a very basic structure. It has 3 spans and the towers are simple blocks with a section cut out at the top to make 2 smaller towers which take the decks load. The future plans for this bridge in the A9 dualling plans show that it will be retained for the southbound on slip for the new junction at Bruar.
