Aberdeenshire road to close for Milton Bridge repairs

A popular tourist route in Aberdeenshire is to be closed to allow repairs to be carried out on a bridge.

Milton Bridge was badly damaged in a crash on Sunday.

Aberdeenshire Council said it was not possible to carry out the repairs without a full closure of the A939 Gairnshiel to Bridge of Gairn road.

The work, which the council accepted would cause disruption, will start on Thursday and is expected to be completed by Friday 7 June.
