Plans to install a safety barrier on Union Bridge have been given the go-ahead by councillors in a bid to stop people taking their own lives.
The scheme would involve installing a safety barrier, in the form of a stainless steel parapet, at the historic B-listed bridge overlooking Denburn Road.
Under the proposals, lampposts and vertical posts would support horizontal wires, to provide protection and lighting at the spot in an effort to prevent people falling.
A report, considered by councillors, revealed there have been “no reported incidents” since the erection of temporary fencing in June this year.
A previous attempt to add a safety barrier last year, under the same design, was rejected over fears the modern barrier would not fit in with the overall look of the bridge.
