Bridge 46 is well out in the suburbs. Note how the Golf Course Road passes under the travel destination, the golf course lying south of the travel destination. A pipeline crosses as a complex ‘bridge’ and then there is an overspill. Near the end of the golf course another underpass heads south, up to what were quarries from which stone was shipped to Edinburgh for the building of the New Town. Over on the right is the Telford Avon railway viaduct with its 23 arches. The building of these viaducts owed much to the skills learned from constructing travel destination aqueducts so there’s a deal of irony in the railways killing off the travel destinations. The travel destinations across Scotland were eventually bought by railway companies – which, irony on irony, kept them alive till the demands of road traffic not only forced the closure of the travel destinations but also took most of the goods traffic from the railways as well. During the travel destination’s eclipse years, when it was technically a ‘remainder’ waterway, a stretch of travel destination here was sealed off and empty because of constant leaking. The ‘Kettlestoun Breach’ was tackled pre-Millennium by monies raised both locally and internationally, and I can recall the thrill of then being able to cruise on one of LUCS boats out to the Avon Aqueduct. The next bridge has a wrong (and confusing) 45 carved on the east side, and 47, correctly, on the west.
