Ritchies secures £90,000 Scottish ground investigation

Bam Ritchies has been appointed by Transport Scotland to carry out the ground investigation for the Berriedale Braes A9 road improvement scheme.

The £90,000 investigation will provide information for the scheme that will remove tight bends on the A9 to the north of the village of Berriedale.

“This government is committed to an improvement scheme at Berriedale Braes where the natural geography makes a challenging road alignment, particularly for HGVs and other long vehicles,” said transport minister Keith Brown.

“We will continue to work with our partners to ensure that the design of this vital scheme is progressed as a matter of urgency and ready for next summer.”

Ritchies is expected to start work on site this month and it will take three weeks to complete.
