A new, single-span bridge to carry the B9090 over the River Nairn east of Inverness to be built alongside the existing Category A Listed stone bridge, which was built in the early 1750s. The existing bridge is deteriorating and an 18-tonne gross weight restriction was imposed in 2015.

It is not clear whether the replacement will have two lanes to match the roads either side. The stone bridge is single-track with traffic signal control.
