3346 c1948 General notes. About this time Carinmuir Road was realigned after the previous road and culvert had been repeatedly affected by flooding. The road alignment included a new bridge, the plan for which was drawn in 1948. It is not clear when the bridge was completed.
3347 c1960 General notes. About this time a large flood scoured out the original timber sheathed abutments. The original abutments were replaced by reinforced concrete abutments.
3348 c1981 General notes. About this time Carinmuir Road was realigned. This was required due to the formation of Lake Dunstan for the Clyde Power project. The bridge was demolished. The new alignment of Cairnmuir Road has corrugated steel 'Armco' culverts where it crosses both the Bannockburn Creek and Shepherds Creek.
