New Bridge

Located a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of the centre of Stirling, the New Bridge is the only road bridge across the River Forth within the city, connecting to the suburbs of Cornton and Causewayhead, as well as providing the route north to the University and Bridge of Allan. Built 1831-32 to the designs of noted engineer Robert Stevenson (1772 - 1850), the bridge comprises five segmental arches of bull-faced ashlar. The structure is B-listed.

Much of the traffic north now follows the M9 motorway, which is conveyed over the Forth by another bridge 1¼ miles (2 km) to the west northwest.
