Passengers at Falkirk’s Grahamston Railway Station will have to make do without the footbridge that crosses over the tracks for the next couple of months.

Scotrail signs erected at the station claim the bridge will be closed from Monday, January 16 for eight weeks to allow refurbishment to take place.

It states: “Please consider this and allow yourself extra time to reach your platform.”

A Scotrail spokesman said: “The footbridge at Falkirk Grahamston is set for refurbishment. The work is being carried out to replace any corroded elements of the bridge and repaint it, giving the footbridge an increased life span and improving the overall look of the bridge.

“Eight weeks is the maximum time the footbridge will be closed for. The extent of repairs to the bridge will not be fully known until the current paintwork is removed.”
