Context

The A95 ‘Whiskey Road’ was closed overnight during a weekend for CTS to carry out the installation of a new 18 x 2m steel and timber footbridge near the village of Cromdale, Strathspey in the Highlands of Scotland.

Work undertaken

The A95 was closed overnight from 11pm on the Saturday until 6am the following day so that the crane could stand on the centre of the carriageway to lower the bridge over the wall at the side of the road onto the newly formed abutments.

The bridge

This bridge is very low maintenance, durable and aesthetically pleasing. It comprises galvanised steel beams combined with Ekki hardwood for the deck and parapet. The parapet style is a Type A comprising vertical infills set at a max 110mm spacing. It also has an additional stainless steel handrail to assist disabled users. The hardwood deck has Hi-Grip Excel non-slip inserts to ensure good grip for all users.

Outcome

The new timber and steel bridge replaced an old worn out structure that was in need of repair. The new wider structure allows easier access by wheelchairs, mobility scooters, pushchairs and cyclists.
