Road surfacing improvements on the busy Kincardine Bridge have been finished one week ahead of schedule.

The work, which cost a total of £350,000, included the removal of the existing swing span surfacing, replacement of the bridge deck waterproofing and movement joints and the reinstatement of the road surfacing, which had reached the end of its operational life.

The repairs began on February 27 and were scheduled to last for six weeks - three weeks southbound and three weeks northbound. The original completion date was estimated as April 11, but work finished today.

Keith McKune, of Amey, said: “We appreciate the patience and co-operation of road users while this essential work is undertaken. As well as completing early, we also undertook substantial concrete repairs and remedial works.

“Road maintenance work intended to keep Scotland’s important trunk routes operating safely and effectively can lead to disruption, but our intention is always to restore an improved service, as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
