Mingary Bridge Isle of Mull
Autumn 2021 the bridge team was busy replacing the old bridge and upgrading the path network at Mingary on the Isle of Mull. The original bridge was built in the Victorian times and was to be replace with a new ATV aerial mast design. the whole site has been designated SSSI statues due to the fresh water pearl Mussels located in the river. Due to this there was special considerations made to minimise the impact of work in such a sensitive location. The original abutments were to be lowered and the stone work repointed, which allowed room the the gabions foundation to be installed. It was great to see all the moving parts come together, the new line and path network blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
