This article is about Tullibody Bridge on an unclassified road north of Tullibody.
For Tullibody Old Bridge on the A907 between Tullibody and Stirling, see Tullibody Old Bridge

The bridge across the River Devon on the unclassified road from Tullibody to Menstrie is rather confusingly called Tullibody Bridge, whilst Tullibody Old Bridge is in a completely different location to the west of the town, and of much more importance both historically and today, as its neighbouring replacement carries the A907.

The crossing at Tullibody Bridge is also a replacement for an older structure, although here the old two arched stone crossing has been demolished. It once lay on the upstream side of the modern bridge, and the tree line set back from the modern road shows up the old road approaches.

The current crossing is a concrete truss-arch on a slight gradient which carries the road across in a single span. There are pavements on both sides of the S2 roadway, with metal railings acting as parapets in a somewhat minimalist design.
