As part of the Marine Scotland grant for Harbour Repairs an audit of the lifting bridge was recently carried out by specialist consultants on moving structures. Trust directors Robin Hamilton, Alasdair Swan, Eric Robertson, also Harbourmaster Quentin Dimmer plus others, were closely involved in this project.

The audit is like a car MOT and looked at each component of the bridge. It identified and detailed further investigation into bridge bearings and hydraulics, also it advised on controlling the opening and closing of the bridge. This bridge is vital for fishing boat access to Cromwell Harbour and traffic access to the Battery and North Wall.
