Gore Glen Bridge (2015-)

Opened on the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway (North British Railway).


This concrete viaduct crosses the A7 on an oblique not far west of Gorebridge station.

The bridge takes the form of a box over the road, despite its size it only carries a single track.

Arniston Gore Pit was just to the north and slightly further north Arniston Emily Pit and Arniston Engine Pit. The Arniston Catchpoints were to the west of the viaduct.
