New footbridges for the Great Glen Way at Inverlochy
The Highland Council has appointed local contractor Corrie Construction to undertake the installation of two new bridges on the Great Glen Way at Inverlochy.
The existing timber footbridges have reached the end of their safe lifespan. The new structures are manufactured from recycled plastic derived from bottle caps, crates and agricultural plastics which provides a durable, low maintenance material able to withstand the routine flooding to which they are exposed in this location. The structures have also been designed to allow safe access for a wide variety of users.
Works will start on site on Monday 21st September 2015 and are expected to be completed within six weeks. The path will be closed for the duration of the works and a diversion will be in place for users of the long distance route via Wades Road and Locheil Road.
For their own safety members of the public should comply with advisory signage and contractor’s instructions on site.
