A month’s worth of concrete repairs is about to get underway on the Dee Bridge at Banchory in Aberdeenshire, with work starting on February 23rd to fill in scour damage on the three piers that support the arches of the bridge.
In order to protect the structure against the effects of future floods, the work must be carried out and is expected to take between three and four weeks, depending on the weather, the Deeside Piper reports.
A council representative was quoted by the news source as saying: “We aim to minimise the disruption by carrying out the majority of the works between 9.30am and 3.00pm each day with closure implemented as required.”
