New A830 bridge opens on sched­ule

The Oban Times - - News -

PROGRESS on a £10 mil­lion Road to the Isles im­prove­ment scheme con­tin­ues as the sec­ond new bridge is com­pleted.

Work on Garbh Bridge, on the Fort Wil­liam to Mal­laig A830, is now fin­ished, with work on the third of the nine, the Utha Bridge, ex­pected to end next month. Stone from the orig­i­nal Garbh struc­ture has been used on the re­place­ment bridge, de­signed to blend into the fa­mous scenic sur­round­ings.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s north west rep­re­sen­ta­tive, said: ‘ We are pleased to open the new A830 Garbh Bridge to traf­fic on sched­ule af­ter months of care­ful con­struc­tion. It pro­vides a safe, low main­te­nance struc­ture that is de­signed to last for 120 years.’
