This is an iconic structure linking Tsyside to the Kingdom of Fife. It is dual carriageway in both directions and well maintained. It is free to motorists with recovery services on hand in case of breakdowns.

A really good example of engineering from the 20th Century. Not remarkable as from your car there isnt much to see but look at it from the land and admire the length. A really good drive giving a different aspect to Dundee

Have been over this bridge many a time. It doesn't seem to have got any less bumpy! You get some great views of the River and City of Dundee.
