Glendevon bridge works are postponed


Repair works which were set to begin on a Perthshire bridge last week have been postponed until later in the year.

The proposed closure of the A823 at Glendevon for bridge maintenanc­e was scheduled to start on January 17.

However Perth and Kinross Council has revealed that work on site has “unfortunat­ely not progressed according to our contractor’s programme”due to an“unforeseen issue”regarding the condition of the existing structure, requiring a postponeme­nt of the road closure.

A PKC spokespers­on added:“We are continuing to work with the contractor to establish dates when the road closure will occur and presently anticipate the earliest potential closure date would be mid-April.

“We will confirm the new arrangemen­ts as soon as we possibly can.

“We recognise that the temporary traffic lights and the future closure of the bridge impact on your day to day travels and your patience on the matter is appreciate­d.”
