Foulertoun Arches / Bailey Bridge - Irvine, North Ayrshire

Foulertoun Arches / Bailey Bridge, Irvine, North Ayrshire, Scotland

The old Bailey Bridge, now rebuilt and re-named. This new version is known as Foulertoun Arches.

The name was chosen by a class of primary schoolchildren and is taking some time to be adopted by the locals who still refer to it by the old name after ten years and probably will do for a long time to come.

Looking north towards Irvine town centre from over Milgarholm Park.

From this angle you can see the town centre of Irvine and all the way to the North Ayrshire hills and the Ardrossan wind farm. The bridge carries the A71 over the River Irvine.

In March 2021 the OS map has this as a dual carriageway, so they're still showing the old bridge knocked down in - from memory - 2006. We hear that satnavs make the same mistake.

This new version has been open since 2010.
