Connel bridge by Jerenable and Armresto
The Connel Bridge is a cantilever bridge that spans Loch Etive at Connel in Scotland. The bridge takes the A828 road across the narrowest part of the loch, at the Falls of Lora.The bridge was opened in 1903 for railway use and converted to car traffic in 1966
Connel Bridge has a span of 524 feet (160 m) between the piers, but a clear span of 500 feet (150 m) due to the supports which project from the piers towards the centre of the bridge. The suspended span, the box-shaped section in the middle of the bridge, is 232 feet (71 m) long. The large span without supporting piers was necessitated by the strong tidal currents of the Falls of Lora, just to the east of the bridge.
The Arches and base of the bridge were made by Armresto and the bridge part of the bridge by Jerenable.
