The old bridge still stands, carrying the former A82 across the river in Luss. It is an interesting structure, with onewide main arch across the river. This arch has obviously been widened at some point, although it is difficult to know which side is newer! The western part is considerably narrower than the eastern side, but this either means that the bridge was only widened a little or that it was unusually narrow in the first instance.
The other interesting feature are the small additional arches some distance to the north of the main arch. These were presumably built to cope with extreme floodwaters which must have been more common in the past.
When the Luss bypass was built, a new bridge was provided about 250m upstream of the old one. This carries the single-carriageway A82 Luss bypass round the village, relieving what was once the biggest bottleneck on this section of the route.
