Underwater examination of the Rail Bridge

Underwater examination of the Rail Bridge

Mon 24 Sep 2018

On the 1st and 2nd October 2018 Geckotech Solutions will be carrying out a scour/underwater examination of the Rail Bridge WCK 302/003 as part of Network Rails inspection regime.


The structure is located in Inverness spanning across the River Ness,  OS reference : NH66364594 (See images).


On the dates of the examination a safety line will be installed which will span across the full width of the River Ness (River Bank to River Bank) along the upstream face of the structure. As a result the River Ness will become un-navigable through the rail bridge on these dates.

60 miles in 5 days

It is an epic 60 mile (95km) journey crossing Scotland in 5 days and conquering the formidable open waters of Loch Lochy and Loch Ness, a challenge in itself.

From South to North

It is normally easier to paddle the Trail from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the east with the prevailing wind behind you.
