Busby Bridge

Busby Bridge is a single span arch bridge carrying the A727 across the White Cart Water in Busby. It was constructed in 1938, presumably replacing an older, narrower bridge. The bridge carries a wide carriageway between wide pavements and stone parapets. Although probably originally a standard S2, the bridge has been relined with three lanes to provide queueing capacity for turning right at the signalised crossroads on the east bank of the river. The left turn is a short dead end, but the right turn is the only access to a large residential area, with an industrial estate on the riverbank.
