Milngavie Bridge crosses the Allander Water in the heart of Milngavie. The old bridge is a simple stone arch, now clad in concrete to provide pedestrian links to the riverside walk. It is constructed out of shaped 'rubble' stone, which along with its general design suggests a Victorian date. However, apart from this obviously being a historic crossing point, little seems to be known of the bridge itself.
Woodburn Way Bridge
When the B8030 was diverted away from Milngavie Town Centre to pedestrianise it, a new bridge was required. This is a wide dual carriageway structure on Woodburn Way just a short distance from Milngavie Bridge. The structure is a very slender Concrete Arch spanning the river in one go. Indeed, the river is so narrow that this bridge is more like a tunnel - longer than it is wide! The Allander Walkway also passes under the bridge as it heads out of town.
Not much further downstream, another bridge crosses the Allander Water, this time to provide access to Tesco's car park. To make things even more interesting, the Tesco Store itself bridges the river, or at least the entrance foyer does, with the store and car park on opposite banks.
