Erskine Bridge Bearing Works Postponed
Due to the adverse weather conditions affecting South West Scotland this weekend, it has been necessary to postpone planned bearing replacement works for the Erskine Bridge South Abutment.
There will therefore be no need for the overnight closure of the bridge, as planned between midnight on Friday the 7th and 4am on Saturday the 8th of February. Planned weekend lane restrictions will not be implemented.
Weather permitting, works will return, as programmed over the following two weekends with a four hour overnight closure of the A898 Erskine Bridge scheduled between midnight on Friday the 14th and 4am on Saturday the 15th of February.
We would ask motorists and particularly those driving high sided vehicles to plan their journey accordingly this weekend, with high winds forecast across South West Scotland. Live trunk road information is available by visiting trafficscotland.org or following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
