Robin Hamilton’s Bridge Report:

McScott Bond MSB together with McTaggart Scott MTS, their sister company, carried out the annual service on the lifting bridge on Wed. 6th Jan. The key contact from MSB is retiring shortly and it has been agreed MTS will take over service and repairs in future subject to a satisfactory performance. 

Following the service of the bridge, hydraulic pumps, electric control, rams, pivots, gearing etc. the contractor has recommended further operational advice is needed for bridge users on the best method of raising/ lowering the bridge.
