Bridges are an integral part of paths and are used to cross a range of ‘barriers’. The need to accommodate different users will dictate variations in the design. Whether crossing a road, railway, river or burn, each bridge poses a different set of planning, design, construction and maintenance issues. So although there are some common features in bridges, each is adapted to its own circumstances.


For comprehensive guidance to help you negotiate the complex factors involved getting a bridge in place refer to icon Path Bridges - Planning, Design, Construction and Maintenance (Paths for All, Scottish Natural Heritage, Forestry Civil Engineering).
