This view of the 'new' Tay Bridge is from the Dundee side. The events of the
disasterous collapse of the original single track bridge meant that a new
construction was needed. This bridge was built using the same basic design
as the old bridge, but of course with suitable modifications and
strengthening. This is a twin track bridge having a wider, more secure
footprint. It still has the 'high girder' where the train runs through the
trusses. The remnants of the removed old bridge can be seen near the foot of
each pillar. Gold embossed Coat of Arms of The City of Dundee.
