Road Closure Waterloo Bridge – 11 weeks from 16th July

Please note that due to Major roadworks involving the re-decking of Waterloo Bridge to be carried out by Aberdeenshire Council it will be necessary in the interests of public safety to apply the following restriction to traffic.

Aim:
A recent assessment of the B9005/90 Waterloo Bridge confirmed that it requires an 18tonne weight restriction or major strengthening works.
As this bridge is on a B class road that serves as an important cross country link between Methlick and Fyvie, it has been decided that a strengthening scheme is the preferred option.
Proposed Works:
The proposed works are to consist of the temporary diversion of the existing telecom cable, removal of the existing substandard concrete bridge deck, and the strengthening of the retained existing masonry abutments and wingwalls. New precast concrete deck slabs will then be lifted into place, before the masonry parapets, telecom cable ducting and surfacing are reinstated.
As part of the SEPA Simple Licence associated with these works, it will be necessary for construction to be completed prior to the fish spawning season, which starts in October.
To this end, we have programmed the proposed works to start on site 16th July 2018 with an 11 week duration. This start date has been chosen to maximise the school holidays but also allow the annual Methlick Cycle Challenge to continue without disruption.
The B9005 will need to be temporarily closed at the bridge for the duration of the works. A signed temporary diversion will be put in place.
As these works will require the removal of the bridge deck and the use of heavy plant on site, we will be unable to provide any exemption to the closure; this precludes pedestrian access.
CLOSURE
B9005 Waterloo Bridge, Methlick 11 weeks commencing Monday 16 July 2018
Site notices will be erected in due course indicating the temporary restriction to traffic and the alternative routes where applicable.
The alternative route is via B9005 Monkshill to Fyvie, A947 Oldmeldrum, B9170 to Methlick and vice versa.
