Footpath Closure River Leven Left Bank Below A82 (Blue Bridge) from now until mid-end October 2020

We have been informed that Messrs Balfour Beattie have started emergency cable replacement works on behalf of Scottish Power. Unfortunately this means that the public footpath underpass below the A82 dual carriageway on the left hand bank is shut to all pedestrians and the approach to that underpass restricted. We believe that this closure may be in place until mid to late October. We know many anglers, local people and dog walkers use this path, so there will be some inconvenience.

The cycle path and right hand bank of the river is unaffected.

This cable we understand is oil filled and is in urgent need of replacement, so it’s in everybody’s interests the cable is replaced before a more serious failure occurs. Working with the LLFT the site operators have had a site visit and all the required paperwork is n place and their environmental awareness and procedures concerning not only for the R Leven but also the Murroch Burn is appropriate.

Can all our anglers and members please note the closure of the underpass and avoid the area until further notice.
