Looking across the bridge

Ballaugh Bridge carries the A3 across the River Dhoo at Ballaugh. It is a wide hump-backed bridge forming a chicane at the western entrance to the village square. Despite having been widened and slightly flattened between the 1953 and 1954 racing seasons, the bridge is still humped enough to provide a jump for bikes on the TT Circuit. Indeed, it is the only remaining humped bridge on the route. The bridge itself is a single stone arch, which has had the parapets removed and replaced with metal railings. The works to flatten it appear to have led to the upper courses of stonework being removed, and capped with concrete to try and lower the hump.


Immediately to the east of the bridge, the A10, Coast Road comes in from the north and ends at a wide crossroads in the Square. A minor road (The C37) heads south opposite it, climbing high into the hills to reach the B10. Traffic from the A10 is swung east around a traffic island, making it a hard right turn out of the road to cross the bridge and continue south along the coast.
