Autumn Road Trip Drive From Leuchars To Cross Tay Road Bridge On Visit To Dundee Tayside Scotland

Tour Scotland early Autumn travel video of a road trip drive, with Scottish music, from Leuchars near St Andrews in Fife to cross over the Tay Road Bridge across the Firth of Tay on ancestry, genealogy, history visit to Riverside Drive in Dundee, Tayside. The A914 road heads North to the A92 road and across the Tay Road Bridge to Dundee. The Tay Road bridge which spans the Firth of Tay from Newport on Tay in Fife to Dundee was designed by William Fairhurst and construction began in March 1963 with the infilling of West Graving Dock, King William Dock and Earl Grey docks in Dundee. The construction was undertaken by Duncan Logan Construction Ltd. Controversially, construction required the demolition of Dundee's Royal Arch where Queen Victoria had entered the city on a royal visit. Rubble from the Victoria arch was used as foundations for the on-ramp. The Riverside Drive is a main arterial road and cuts off the city from its riverside. When driving in Scotland, slow down and enjoy the trip. All photographs are copyright of Sandy Stevenson, Tour Scotland, and may not be used without permission.
