A737 Dalry Bypass – River Garnock Bridge Launch

River Garnock Bridge Launch – Phase 1 & 2

Following high praise from the Scottish Minister for Transport  during a recent visit to site, the Farrans Roadbridge team on the A737 Dalry Bypass were delighted to reach another key milestone on the £31.2m project, with the first of two phases of the bridge being launched over the River Garnock.

The launching operation consisted of pulling a 650T double girder from the assembly area over the River Garnock towards the Glasgow/Ayr railway line and was completed over 9 hours. It represents another significant milestone on the Transport Scotland project as the team progress steadily on the scheme, on target for completion by the end of next year.
