During a meeting of The Highland Council’s Planning, Development and Infrastructure Committee, members have given their approval for £2.25m to be spent on constructing a replacement of The White Bridge by Cawdor which carries the B9090 road over the River Nairn.

The bridge is the oldest structure in the Council’s estate and following a safety inspection, a preliminary design report compiled by the Council’s Structural Engineers has recommended that a new single span replacement bridge be built.

In recognition of the strategic role the bridge plays for both the local community and businesses operating in the area, Councillors agreed to treat the need for a new crossing as a priority so following today’s decision to allocate funding, the project will move forward to the design and implementation stage with completion expected within 2-3 years.
