Almond Valley Viaduct - Description
The Almond Valley Viaduct is a Category A listed building in Scotland. The railway viaduct was built in between 1839-41 by John Gibb and Son of Aberdeen for the the Edinburgh to Glasgow and opened in 1842. The viaduct carries the railway over the River Almond near Newbridge and is known locally as 'The Arches' or, sometimes, 'Ratho Viaduct'.
Almond Valley Viaduct is the longest structure on the Edinburgh-Glasgow railway. It has two parts, separated by an embankment. The eastern section has 36 segmental masonry arches each with a span of 15.2m. The western section has only 6 arches. In 1988 the pillars were reinforced with steel bands made of old rails to allow trains to cross over at increased speeds.
This picture was taken relatively close to the eastern section of the viaduct. A second Almond Valley Viaduct panorama shows the section from further away, revealing more arches.
