|Ruthven Bridge Carriageway Remedial Works, 2nd May to 26th May 2023|
|Story Contracting have been appointed by The Highland Council to deliver the Ruthven Bridge Carriageway Remedial Works project, and will shortly begin construction works in the area. Although this work is essential, we would like to apologise in advance for any disturbance it may potentially cause you.
The existing bridge is in a poor state of repair, causing issues for road users and pedestrians, and we appreciate this bridge provides you essential access to the area. Our project involves closing the existing bridge to vehicles from Tuesday, the 2nd of May until Friday the 26th of May, although we will endeavour to get this completed quicker if possible.
As part of the works, we need to maintain access for Non-Motorised Users or ‘NMUs’ throughout the project, which will allow pedestrians, dismounted cyclists and dismounted horses to go across the bridge during the works, but not vehicles.
During the works, we have a few activities that we require the bridge to be completely closed to NMUs, to ensure that the public safety is maintained.
Please note, on the days that we full closure, we are only permitted to close the bridge completely to NMUs during the hours of 9am until 3pm, outside of this, the bridge will be opened again for NMU access.
These dates where full closures will be in place (from 9am until 3pm) are:
· Wednesday the 3rd of May – Removing the existing surfacing.
· Tuesday the 9th of May – Installing new bridge deck water proofing.
· Wednesday 10th May – Installing new bridge deck water proofing.
· Monday the 15th of May – Installing the new bridge deck surfacing.
· Tuesday the 16th of May – Installing the new bridge deck surfacing.
