Tay Viaduct [Perth] (1849-)
Opened on the Dundee and Perth Railway.
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
A metal girder single track viaduct which, in 1864, replaced an earlier double track timber viaduct which had 25 arches and an iron swing bridge.
The first span on the west side was double track as the reversing spur for the Perth Princes Street goods yard, built on a very cramped site, was on the viaduct. The first pier of the viaduct remains for a double track today, although the line is now single.
