Posted : 17th June 2020

Essential maintenance work required for two bridges on the A84 between Stirling and Callander

·        Strict physical distancing protocols in place for safety

·        Projects to take place from Monday 22 June for six weeks

 

An essential maintenance project that will involve teams repairing the bridge deck and carrying out underside concrete repairs on the A84 Drip Bridge in Stirling and the A84 Keltie Bridge near Callander is set to get underway from Monday 22 June.

It is vital that these essential works are carried out in order to maintain the integrity and safety of the trunk road network.

The essential maintenance projects are scheduled to begin on Monday 22 June and will take place over approximately six weeks at both locations.

To ensure the safety of workforce and motorists, the carriageway will be reduced to one lane over each bridge under temporary traffic lights.

Further maintenance work on the A84 Drip Bridge is expected to take place next year.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all on-site personnel remain safe throughout the duration of the project. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “We’ve arranged for the work to minimise impact on key workers and those making essential journeys. The lower level of traffic using the trunk road network at this current time means it may be more straightforward to carry out these essential maintenance projects on the A84.

“At this difficult time the safety of our employees and our supply chain remains a top priority during these essential bridge projects, 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.”
