Connel Bridge reduced clearance, September 2019 to February 2020

BEAR Scotland plan to install a temporary platform under Connel Bridge at the mouth of Loch Etive.

The Charted Clearance of 14 metres will be reduced to 13 metres for the duration of the works. The installation should begin in September 2019. The air draught will be reduced for approximately 6 months.

Mariners are advised to navigate with caution in this area until the platform is removed.

Any vessel with a height above sea level greater than 10 metres intending to pass under the bridge during the work must contact the BEAR Scotland Major Bridges Manager on (44)07845 220 531 in sufficient time to warn BEAR Scotland personnel working under the bridge of the imminent arrival of said vessel.
