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.
