Additional Information
Bridge Type:  Concrete Bridge

The Bridge across the River Spey in front of the Spey Dam was built to divert the road when the dam was built. The old road followed the river up to the site of the dam, crossing just beyond and so climbing up to reach the modern road. At present no records of the old bridge have been found to describe it!

The New Bridge

The bridge that crosses the Spey today is a 3-span Concrete deck across the river, supported by two piers in the water. The roadway is single carriageway, with a pavement on the western side, and bounded by concrete parapets designed to look like fences.

There is a very similar structure across a diversion channel a few miles further up Strathspey near Glen Shira.
