Bridge over the Bluther Burn

 

 

We were approached by the West Fife Woodlands Group and asked if we wanted to get involved in the construction of a bridge over the Bluther Burn to give access to Balgownie from the East, we readily agreed!  After we received the plans we quickly realised there were parts of the bridge we could not fabricate ourselves.  After some discussion with John Le Marie of West Fife Woodlands group and the Forestry Commission Scotland, it was agreed that the steel would be cut welded and drilled by a contractor suplied by the FCS.

The bridge infrastructure arrived like a giant mechano set which the Metalwork department at WFE put together.  The Woodwork department however had to break out material and cut the wood to size.  It was then fitted to the bridge and painted with a preservative.

The bridge was then uplifted on to a low loader and taken to the site by the contractors and fitted in place.

The Forestry Commission Scotland paid for the bridge to be manufactured and installed.
