Padlocks to be removed from Inverness bridges
The Highland Council will be removing padlocks and any other attachments from the Infirmary and Greig Street footbridges in Inverness.
These padlocks detract from the historic nature of the bridges as well as causing paint damage and encouraging rust spots.
There have also been incidents of pedestrians and cyclists catching clothing on them whilst passing each other.
The Council will retain any padlocks removed for 4 weeks, after which time they will be disposed of. The Council asks that people refrain from placing padlocks on these or any other assets to help reduce ongoing maintenance costs.
Padlocks can be retrieved by their owners now or collected after the Council removes them from Diriebught Depot at the address below. If you have any queries, then please contact Highland Council through the call centre on 01349 886601 or through the website www.highland.gov.uk
