In addition to the documents listed above, there are also some ‘As Built’ drawings created by the contractor when the bridge was built. These are held as paper copies by the Council and copies cannot be provided electronically due to the size and condition of the drawings. However, special arrangements can be made for these to be viewed within the Council offices. If you would like to arrange to view these, please confirm this with us.
Under our duty to be helpful, you may also wish to view the Council website for additional information regarding the closure of the bridge: http://www.moray.gov.uk/moray_roads/page_137354.html
