Will the White Bridge replacement get a shove to the top of the Highland Council capital expenditure programme today?

"A long-awaited solution to a replacement for Highland Council’s oldest bridge could be on the horizon.

Councillors will be asked at a meeting this week to “accelerate” the process for an alternative to the White Bridge B9090 crossing of the River Nairn, near Cawdor, with a pledge of £2.25million to cover the cost.

Community services director William Gilfillan has confirmed that the project has been reviewed.

“Due process will be followed this week to establish whether the funding is agreed or not,” he said."   

The meeting starts at 10.30 am, the agenda is here and the White Bridge is item 5 for discussion. You can watch it live here. Recently the implications of the White Bridge 18-tonne weight limit for Nairn were discussed at a Community Council meeting.
