The Agivey Bann Bridge, also known as the Agivey Bridge is a truss bridge south of Coleraine on the Lower Bann. It carries two traffic lanes, and dates from the early 1980s and is the fourth bridge on the site.

The Old Bridges

In 1980, the old bridge was demolished. This was a truss bridge that was designed and built by Victor Coates & Co, Belfast in 1859/60. It replaced a timber bridge of 1834 which had replaced a previous timber bridge of 1795[1].
