The new bridge was built by Tancred and Arrol of Glasgow and opened to traffic on 20 June 1887, being the last of the great wrought iron railway bridges; it remains in use.

Since opening, the bridge has needed little other than routine maintenance, the expansion bearings being replaced between 1953 and 1965, and sections of the deck subsequently.
