Bo’ness footbridge: almost ready for crossing!

In order to maintain the footbridge at Bo’ness, in February 2019 the Scottish Railway Preservation Society (SRPS) removed the structure for a thorough examination and repair by an external contractor. During inspection, it was identified that the works required to the footbridge were significantly more extensive than first anticipated. As a listed structure we were obliged to follow strict processes to appropriately restore the footbridge to its former glory.

UPDATE 04/03/2020 :The restoration project of the footbridge at Bo’ness Railway Station took a leap forward on Monday with the return of the centre span. Whilst not yet ready for public use, work will continue by our volunteers to get the footbridge open again for visitors and locals alike. Further updates will follow.
Fact – did you know this is the original footbridge which stood at Murthly Station, north of Perth on the Highland Railway Mainline?

We understand the ongoing inconvenience caused by bridge’s absence; please see below for alternative access to Bo’ness foreshore.
