Project Overview

The project involved the replacement of the existing Cromdale Footbridge adjacent to a listed road bridge, which crosses the Burn of Cromdale. The site is located approximately 4km east of Grantown-on-Spey in the center of Cromdale in Scotland.

Works included the demolition of existing timber pedestrian footbridge, tree clearance and service diversions, and the construction and erection of new 18m steel/timber footbridge, concrete foundations and abutments, and associated resurfacing, drainage, fencing and landscaping works.

The project also required the design and installation of all temporary traffic and pedestrian management sequencing to enable the safe delivery of the project.

All works were carried out in a restricted environment, with pedestrian and vehicular traffic having to be maintained at all times. In addition, all works were undertaken adjacent to an existing listed grade 2 road bridge structure and above an existing watercourse.
