The New Speybridge was built in 1931 to replace the ancient Old Speybridge a little further downstream. It is, as most bridges built in the Highlands in the 1930s were, a Concrete S2 structure with pedestrian footways. The single span is a very shallow arch to remove the need for any supports in the river and yet minimise the gradient required on the road.

Today, as always, the bridge carries the A95 / A939 multiplex south from Grantown, with the two routes meeting at the roundabout at the north end of the bridge since the very short Grantown bypass was built.
