Essential bridge maintenance project for A96 Carden Bridge near Oyne


  • Work starts Sunday 21 June for approximately six weeks
  • Strict physical distancing protocols in place to protect teams


Essential work to the A96 Carden Bridge near Oyne is set to resume from Sunday 21 June.

The project was temporarily paused in March in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.  The maintenance work has now been rescheduled to start on Sunday 21 June and will take place over approximately six weeks.   It is vital that these essential works are carried out in order to maintain the integrity and safety of the trunk road network at this location, helping to ensure it remains safe and reliable for key workers, deliveries and those making essential journeys. 

To keep roadworkers as well as motorists safe during the project and to ensure repairs can be completed in the shortest possible timescale, temporary traffic lights will be in place 24 hours a day for the duration of the project.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway.  New safe operation procedures and risk assessments have also been developed to ensure teams are kept safe throughout the project.  

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: This essential maintenance work will allow our teams to complete the repairs required on the A96 Carden Bridge.

“At this difficult time the safety of our employees and our supply chain remains a top priority during the essential project, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Government guidance to ensure they are kept safe.  Thorough risk assessments have been developed to ensure all staff remain safe.

Our teams will do all they can to ensure that project is completed as quickly and as safely as possible.”
