Perth & Kinross Council takes action over lovelocks


 November 11, 2018 – Perth & Kinross Council is having to carry out an operation to remove ‘lovelocks’ from one of its footbridges in order to prevent damage and enable a full structural inspection.

The work is being carried out as the extent of the padlocks attached to Port-na-Craig footbridge is now such that it 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.

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