The Kessock Bridge will have to wait some time yet before it gets a new lick of paint.

Trials of various types of paint on the bridge started in September 2018, and management company Bear Scotland is still planning for it to have a makeover.

A spokesman said: “The initial painting trials completed on the bridge in 2019 provided valuable insights as to how we can progress the painting scheme to ensure it remains safe and protected for years to come.

“The painting work on the bridge would involve removing the existing paint and applying a new paint protection system to all the main components, including beneath the deck as well as the towers.

“We’re in the process of carrying out testing to determine the effects from the temporary access structures required to facilitate the painting scheme, including during adverse weather conditions.”
