AJE team involved in £1m plus bridge refurb

Project manager Malcolm Rennie

The team at AJE is involved in the £1.8 million refurbishment of the Craigellachie Bridge.

Led by project manager Malcolm Rennie, AJ Engineering will be working with a contractor appointed by Moray Council to carry out strengthening works on the structure.

A temporary repair to the bridge was carried out in spring, after an inspection by Moray Council engineers found damage to the bearings underneath the structure.

But now, a full refurbishment of the bridge is underway and is expected to be completed in March 2020.

The works will include replacing the bridge bearings, repairs will be made to the carriageway before it gets resurfaced, handrails will be upgraded, and the footpath will be upgraded with new kerbs and resurfaced.

Traffic lights will be in operation for the duration of the works, which will see traffic reduced to one lane, but they will be taken down between 21 December 2019 and 6 January 2020.

Moray Council’s Chair of Economic Development & Infrastructure, Cllr Graham Leadbitter, said the upgrading works were vital.

“Craigellachie Bridge forms an important part of a strategic route through Moray for businesses, residents and visitors. The work to the bridge is a significant piece of essential maintenance. There will be some delays during the works, but I am sure motorists will appreciate the complex nature of the project and the long-term reliability benefits that the upgrade will deliver.”
