Garmouth viaduct closure

Press release   •   Jan 20, 2016 09:24 GMT

The former railway viaduct spanning the River Spey at Garmouth is to be closed to walkers and cyclists for six weeks from next Monday.

The closure will allow work to be carried out on replacing the timbers on the structure.

The work is being funded through a £120,000 grant from Sustrans, with an additional £20,000 coming from Moray Council’s lands and parks budget.

Signage will be in place advising users of a diversion via Mosstodloch.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 92,500 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
