The Potarch Bridge is likely to remain closed until early February according to Aberdeenshire Council, due to damage to its foundations.

A spokesperson for Aberdeenshire Council said: “Potarch Bridge between Banchory and Aboyne is closed to traffic and pedestrians although a diversion is in place. The closure is due to significant damage to the foundations of the bridge below one pier.

“Work is taking place to reopen the bridge as soon as possible, however it is likely to remain closed until early February.”
