Category:Railway Viaducts Over South Esk River
English: Single track railway viaducts on the Edinburgh to Aberdeen railway line over the River South Esk at Montrose, comprising two individual viaducts. The southern viaduct is a brick construction, featuring 17 arches and a slight curve, skirting along the edge of the estuary. This viaduct was built by Sir Thomas Bouch in 1879. The northern viaduct is of wrought iron construction, it was originally built by Sir Thomas Bouch at the same time as the southern viaduct but being of wrought iron construction similar to that of the original Tay Bridge (also by Bouch), was tested in the wake of the Tay Bridge collapse and found to be structurally unsafe. The viaduct was dismantled and rebuilt by Sir William Arrol to a design by W R Galbraith, opening in 1881.
