Archaeology Notes

NJ90NW 211 NJ 93411 06463 to NJ 93706 06322

For Denburn Viaduct (NJ 9382 0632), see NJ90NW 207.

(Location cited as NJ 935 063). The latest of an unusual series of bridges built to open up new areas of the city for development. Built 1886, together with the Denburn viaduct (NJ90NW 207), by engineer William Boulton; has a single segmental skew arch.

J R Hume 1977.

Together with the Denburn viaduct (NJ90NW 207), this structure completed the scheme for city development. By judicious embankment the viaduct provided Union Terrace with a more satisfactory termination, thus creating the site for the theatre, new church and library.
