2020: The road is surprising wide at this point. Via Facebook Dugald Gonsal helpfully explained "I was selected and appointed by Ken Harman to design and manage the construction of this bridge to replace the old bridge which had a severe weight restriction. It was decided that traffic should not be restricted during the reconstruction. In order to achieve this requirement a "new" bridge was built alongside the substandard bridge. When this phase was completed traffic was moved over and the old bridge was then demolished and reconstructed. It is for that reason that the bridge appears to have a dual carriageway."
