Historic Strathspey bridge closed to traffic after accident
The C1139 road at Broomhill Bridge over the River Spey just north of Nethy Bridge has temporarily been closed to traffic.
It follows a vehicle striking a stone pillar at the south end of the bridge last night.
The collision dislodged masonry and left the bridge in an unsafe condition for vehicles.
A Highland Council spokeswoman said: "This incident has not affected the structural integrity of the bridge, however, it is anticipated that the bridge will remain closed until the masonry is made safe which will be as soon as possible.
"Work will take place in the coming days to reconstruct the stonework while facilitating access."
The category A Listed bridge around one mile north of Nethy Bridge is regarded by many experts as the finest wooden bridge surviving in Scotland today.
The current structure dates from 1894.
The nearest diversion for traffic arriving at the bridge and heading to Nethy Bridge is via the B970 turn-off by Achnagonlin on the outskirts of Grantown.
