**UPDATE: ESSENTIAL BRIDGE INSPECTIONS FOR A84 BRIDGE OF TEITH RESCHEDULED FOLLOWING HIGH RIVER LEVELS**

Essential bridge inspections on the A84 Bridge of Teith in Doune, outlined in the release below, have been rescheduled to take place on Saturday 15 February after high water levels prevented teams from carrying out the programmed work. 

The inspections were originally programmed to take place on Saturday 1 February but were cancelled as high-water levels resulting from the inclement weather conditions prevented the team from safely carrying them out. 

The work will now take place on Saturday 15 February and will involve teams conducting surveys on the central pier of the bridge to determine any future maintenance requirements. Work will take place between 5am and 12 noon to help minimise disruption to motorists.

The traffic management will remain the same as originally planned, with the bridge closed in both directions to ensure the safety of the workforce and motorists during the inspections. A signed diversion route will be in place via the A820 and A9. The A84 will remain open up to the B8032 Junction.

Emergency services, buses and pedestrians will be able to pass through at all times.

The investigations being carried out are essential for assessing the condition of the bridge to determine any future maintenance requirements which must comply with the Listed Building consent.

“The traffic management is essential to keep everyone safe during the project, however we have planned the works to finish before 12noon to help minimise disruption as much as possible.
