Oakfield Swing Bridge

Works to to replace the traffic barriers and signage on Oakfield Bridge will get underway in 2019/2020.

This project has been temporarily postponed due to revised priorities and is expected to be completed as part of the 2019/20 Asset Management Plan.

The Crinan Canal is one of Argyll & Bute’s most popular tourism attractions bringing significant economic benefit to the local area. Oakfield Swing Bridge on the canal is a public road bridge which services the local and tourist road traffic as well as over 1,600 boats which pass through each year.

In order to ensure the bridge continues to meet the latest regulatory standards and can be operated safely a project will get underway in 2019/2020 to replace the traffic barriers and signage.
