Cairnbaan Swing Bridge

Essential works to replace the control mechanism and signage on Cairnbaan Swing Bridge will get underway in 2018/2019.

The Crinan Canal is one of Argyll & Bute’s most popular visitor attractions with over 1,600 boats transiting the canal each year.

Cairnbaan Swing Bridge is a public road bridge with outdated operation mechanisms making the bridge unreliable. To ensure the continued safe passage of boat traffic through the bridge and vehicles over the bridge, essential works which include the replacement of the control mechanism and signage will get underway in 2018.

These works will ensure the bridge meets current safety and compliance regulations.
