Bridge Type:  Arch Bridge
Engineer:  James Jardine

Auchmuirbridge carries the former B922 across the River Leven, a couple of miles west of Leslie. The bridge was built c1829 by James Jardine to replace an older crossing as part of the improvement works to the River Leven. These were designed to regulate the flow to the many mills further downstream while at the same time reclaiming agricultural land around Loch Leven. The bridge is a plain stone arch carrying a narrow S2 carriageway, which is similar to New Gullet Bridge further upstream. The parapets are splayed out on either bank to form wing walls which then curve down into the ground. The bridge carried the B922 until the 1970s when the route was cut back to the B921 near Kinglassie, probably as a result of the growth of Glenrothes to the east.


On either side of the bridge are T junctions, which will be treated as a single junction complex. On the south side, the former B922 now TOTSOs to the west, with priority given to the other unclassified road which heads south east across the hills to meet the B920 near Ballingry. On the north bank of the river, the road over the bridge meets the A911. All of these routes are standard two-way roads, without any turning lanes or traffic signals.
