Work to renew Merryton Bridge walkway
Issued by Scottish Water
Work to renew the pedestrian walkway across the Merryton Bridge in Nairn will be carried out by Scottish Water this month.
The work will see the wooden decking replaced on the bridge, as well as supporting timbers where required.
Subject to suitable weather conditions, the work is expected to take place for up to two weeks starting from Monday 12 February. In order for the work to take place safely, the bridge will be temporarily closed to pedestrians during this period.
Gavin Steel, of Scottish Water, said:
“We are carrying out this essential work on the Merryton Bridge to ensure it can continue to serve as a safe pedestrian route for local residents and visitors.
“The work has been planned to avoid the busier summer months; however, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We would ask pedestrians to heed the signs that will be in place and cross the river via the other bridges during this period.
“Our contractor will be working to complete the work and enable the bridge to re-open safely as quickly as possible.”
