The bridge that currently carries the B970 across the Spey at Aviemore is a modern S2 Concrete structure, with a slight gradient as the east bank is lower than the west. The style of the bridge suggests it was built in the second half of the 20th Century, when the road to Cairngorm was upgraded.
The old bridge across the Spey
A little way downstream, another bridge spans the river. This is an Iron Truss bridge which is now used as a footbridge. However, old maps all show the B970, and for a short while the A951 crossing the river here, suggesting that this narrow bridge was the former road bridge across the Spey. On the west bank it connects with Dalfaber Road, while on the east bank a forest road / cycletrack could easily lie on top of the old road surface.
