Stirling Lloyd Construction is set to start work on the second phase of a £13.2m waterproofing and resurfacing programme at Kessock Bridge in Scotland.

The 20-week programme on the bridge’s southbound carriageway will see Stirling Lloyd fulfil all preparation, waterproofing and resurfacing work using the Eliminator bridge deck waterproofing system combined with Gussasphalt, supplied by Stirling Lloyd’s partners Aeschlimann AG. This follows the successful completion last July of the first phase northbound carriageway, on schedule and within budget.

The cable-stayed Kessock Bridge is a 1,056 metre long continuous steel deck superstructure that carries the A9 trunk road across the Beauly Firth north of Inverness.

The improvement programme, being carried out on behalf of Transport Scotland, will, once completed, give the bridge deck surfacing a predicted life expectancy of over 30 years.
