Ness Viaduct

A low steel-beam bridge which conveys the railway across the River Ness at Inverness, the Ness Viaduct was built quickly in 1989-90 to replace an earlier viaduct which had been carried away by a flood on 6th/7th February 1989. The original viaduct was constructed by engineer Joseph Mitchell (1803-83) for the Inverness and Ross-shire Railway. It opened in 1862 and comprised a five-arch masonry bridge, with a plate-girder approach span on the west side of the river and four masonry arches and a plate-girder span on the east side, with a total length of 204m (669 feet).
