The A9 Pitlochry bypass starts by the crossing of the River Tummel on a large concrete and steel structure. It was built in 1981 as part of the Pitlochry bypass. The bridge crosses the river and the off slip from the A9 to the A924.

It has 3 spans, the centre span crosses the river. The towers are concrete cast and are the width of the deck. The bridge carries a slightly wider than normal S2 to accommodate the dual carriageway connection to the south. The bridge can be viewed on the slip road running under the bridge and can be glimpsed from the train as you zoom past.

In the A9 dualling plans this bridge will be retained for southbound traffic while a rather grand arch bridge to be provided for northbound traffic.
