Perth & Kinross Council takes action over lovelocks

9 Nov 18 Perth & Kinross Council is having to remove ‘lovelocks’ from one of its footbridges to prevent damage and enable a full structural inspection.

There are now so many padlocks attached to Port-na-Craig footbridge that is preventing full inspection of the bridge and its structural elements. They are also causing damage to the bridge paintwork leading to rusting of steel sections, as well as posing a potential snagging hazard for pedestrians.

So they have to go.

The padlocks, once removed, will be stored at the local library for four weeks to give their owners the opportunity to collect them.
