Drone footage shows Erskine Bridge upgrade

Drone footage released by Scotland TranServ shows the full scale of work carried out to upgrade the Erskine Bridge.

A £3.23 million upgrade of the lighting columns and electrical system has recently been completed, with prinicipal contractor Lightways (Contractors) Ltd responsible for delivering the scheme.

Over the last 22 weeks they have replaced more than 800 individual lamps, both internally and externally, with brighter and more efficient LED lighting across the 1,300 metre long structure and its approaches. In addition, almost 130 lamps have been switched to LED lighting on the A82.

Operating company, Scotland TranServ has overseen the programme of work, ensuring that the project was delivered on time and to specification.

Transport Minister, Humza Yousaf said: “The Erskine Bridge is a vital link for road users, especially in the West of Scotland, and the Scottish Government has invested £7.56 million in its ongoing maintenance in the last two years.

“The latest upgrade has been a complex and technical project which has seen teams working at heights of up to thirty-eight metres to install the latest LED lighting, which will not only be brighter but more energy efficient.”
