Lack of materials delays Bridge of Dee resurfacing

I have been asked by a number of people why the resurfacing of the Bridge of Dee planned for October did not go ahead.

The answer I received from a Council senior manager about this was that the work had to be postponed because a contractor was not able to obtain materials required for the bridge to be resurfaced.

This means that, once the materials are secured, the Bridge of Dee will have to be closed again so it can be resurfaced.

The senior manager said to me in an email:

“The Bridge works had to be cancelled due to issues with the contractor, appointed to carry out the work on the joints. Each arch on the bridge has a flexible joint which is being repaired at the same time. Unfortunately the materials required are caught up in the delivery issues being encountered nationally. The team didn’t want to cancel phase 2 of the works which are from Bridge of Dee towards Stonehaven, up the hill.

“They moved onto this section due to the problems with the bridge deck. The bridge works will require to be noticed again and the TTRO changed. Unfortunately we don’t have a date yet for this work.”
