Additional Details:
Or the Broomclaw, asit is frequently called, is a substantial eight-arched structure opened for traffic in 1899. It replaces a fine bridge built by Telford in 1836, but which after some years was found totally inadequate for the growing needs of the city. A portion of Telford's bridge was included in the new structure, which cost nearly L100,000. The Caledonian Hallway Bridge is situated a short distance further west.
