Foulertoun Arches or bailey bridge
Irvine, North Ayrshire
The name Foulertoun Arches was chosen by a class of primary schoolchildren and is taking some time
to be adopted by the locals who still refer to it by the old name after ten years
and probably will do for a long time to come.
From this angle you can see the town centre of Irvine and all the way to
the north Ayrshire hills and the Ardrossan wind farm. The bridge carries the
A71 over the River Irvine.
In January 2022 the OS map has this as a dual carriageway, so they're still
showing the old bridge which was knocked down in - from memory - 2006. We hear
that satnavs make the same mistake. This new version has been open since 2010.
