Overview

The event will include a presentation on the works to replace an 80m section of the Kincardine Bridge, the southern piled viaduct which is being replaced in a major upgrade of the category A structure.

The Kincardine Bridge is made up of multiple connected spans, including a piled viaduct at the southern end, which was structurally assessed by civil engineers in 1983 as substandard in design. Subsequent structural assessments in 2002 and 2022 have provided further clarity on the theoretical load carrying capacity. The viaduct has continued to be closely monitored and a steel propping system was installed in 1992 to provide interim structural support.

This project will secure the long-term future of the bridge as a key link over the Forth.

This is being delivered by Balfour Beatty (Contractor) and Bear Scotland.

The visit will consist of an indoor presentation of the project. This will be followed by a guided tour of the works including the old engine room and control room.

Registration for this event is limited to 20. 

Parking for the event is at Kincardine Community Centre.

There is very limited parking on site for those with mobility issues.
