Linlithgow Railway Viaduct.

British Rail has commissioned Storey Construction to carry out work to re-inforce the piers of the viaduct at Linlithgow Bridge. This will include the 3no piers within the bed of the River Avon.

Work is due to commence next week and will last at least until the end of October. The work will involve diverting the flow of the Avon towards the west (Falkirk) bank and use caissons to form a dry zone around the 2no piers currently within the Avon bed. The work has all relevant statutory approvals, and will NOT affect any run of migratory fish.

FFT biologists will be on site to monitor the work and to carry out any fish rescues required.
