£100,000 Maintenance Project is set to begin on A87 Dornie New Bridge

Work is set to begin on Monday 19 November for up to four weeks


 A new £100,000 maintenance project is scheduled on the A87 Dornie New Bridge which is set to benefit both pedestrians and motorists with the maintenance of expansion joints and footpaths on the bridge. 

The upgrade involves the replacement of the expansion joints at either end of the structure, helping to ensure the bridge continues to operate safely for years to come. At the same time the footpath surface will be replaced to increase pedestrian safety.

The project is scheduled to begin on Monday 19 November and will last for up to four weeks.  To keep road workers as well as motorists safe, temporary traffic lights will be in place continuously during the project.  

Diversions for pedestrians will be in place as one footway will be closed throughout the duration of the works. Pedestrians are encouraged to use the underpass to safely cross the road at the east end of the bridge.

BEAR Scotland’s Representative for the North West Unit, Eddie Ross, said: “The upgrade on the Dornie New Bridge will be a huge benefit for both pedestrians and motorists on the A87 route. 

“The traffic management arrangements that we have in place will ensure the protection of our teams as well as motorists, and the project is expected to have minimum impact on traffic through Dornie. Pedestrians should follow the footway restriction signs for their safety.

“We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance and our team will do all they can to complete the project on time and as safely as possible.”
