Bo’ness Footbridge – Update August 2019

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 are obliged to follow strict processes to appropriately restore the footbridge to its former glory. We have now sourced the appropriate drawings to do so and the contractor is working tirelessly to complete the works required. 

We understand the ongoing inconvenience caused by bridge’s absence, however, we now expect that the footbridge will be back in situ for the start of 2020.
