A87-A863 Junction at Sligachan

The new bridge carrying the A87 over the Sligachan.. Note the new style Scottish sign with Gaelic & Eng text. These signs are completely different to those used in Wales-which makes no differentiation by colour & Ireland which puts Gaelic in an old style font..

Note,lots of money is being spent by replacing all signs with bilingual ones now, rather than waiting until they reach the end of their life. And that sometimes primary destinations are gold on green, and other times patched green on white!!

I like the way the curve of the bridge is in sympathy with the curves in its environment.

An unusual POTM entry, as you can't see the actual road! But it should crop down well for the banner image.
