Friarton Bridge, Perth

A high-level cantilever four-lane road bridge of twin box-girder construction which crossed the River Tay 1½ miles (2.5 km) southeast of Perth, the Friarton Bridge represents the northeastern end of the M90 Motorway. It allows traffic to bypass Perth to the east linking with the A90 which forges east across the Carse of Gowrie. The bridge was designed by Freeman Fox & Partners and built by the Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Company in 1978. It cost £9.1 million and represents the first road crossing of the river upstream of the Tay Road Bridge at Dundee.
