The Dornoch Firth Bridge
The Dornoch Bridge was opened in August 1991 by HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.
The contract to design and build the Dornoch Firth Bridge was awarded to Christiani-Morrison Joint Venture and the total cost was estimated to be in the region of £11.25 million.
The design proposed by the contractor involved the use of the “cast-push” technique of deck construction which allowed the bridge deck to be built in factory conditions behind the south abutment (Edderton) and launched across the firth.
